Re: my favorite 308 win load so far!!!

Been using Varget in my 308 with the 175gr and 210M primers 45gr varget in Win or Black hills
match brass when I can get it....Yes there is pressure signs but still no problems have used it, in matches or just out shooting. No plans on changing.......

I shoot a 700 5r milspec. The twist is 1 in 11.25 or so with a 24 inch tube. SMK 175's shoot well! Berger 175 tactical otm shoot better for me and Have a higher BC. Dope change at 1k yards is 1 full mill less for the Berger. I also use the new Hornady 178 match BTHP and its .1 Mil more dope change from the Berger. They both shoot well in my 5r. Im not a hunter, just a long range steel guy. The Berger and the Hornady will go past 1300 yards If I do my part. Oehler 35p clocks the Berger at 2705 fps average of 10 and the Hornady 178 2730 fps.

Lapua brass at 2.001
Federal 210m
44 grains rl 15
178 hornady
coal of 2.860 (just under max for mag length)

5 shots in .26 inches at 100 yards

Bergers do the same with a coal of 2.815 but at .50$ a pill vs .28$ a pill ???
