Re: New to Reloading- .308 Baseline
Varget was my 308 go to powder, but the lots started having slightly different burn rates and its dirty as hell so I keep about 16#s of Imr4064. It has been more consistant/accurate and cleaner and works equally well with CCI200s, BR2s, 210s, and 210Ms. My hunting load is 46grns under a Berger 168 classic hunter hybrid on a .030" jump in Norma brass with a 210M, but a 168 nosler ballistic tip works just as well with 45.5
The newer powders like AR comp and PP2000MR are also showing a lot of promise, accurate and stupid fast for a 308, PP2000MR makes your 308 think its a 30-06. I also got a 28" 10 twist for the sole purpose of shooting 208 amaxs over rl17, kicks like a 300wm! Some have had decent results with this combo in 24" 5Rs as well. Also the 185 Berger classic hunter hybrid I hear works well with PP2000MR and CFE223 but I haven't tried that one yet. Good luck to ya.
