Powder for the 308 ?

I know this is probably a diffulcult question,but with all the powder shortage
in the USA..I am wondering what would be a pretty good all around powder..
I know it all depends on bullet weight..So lets just say like between 150 to
200 grain...

Ramshot imports Tac.....

I've got some and it works well with heavy's in the 5.56; should be a good powder for the 308 too. Similar to blc2 or h335-- two other good ball choices. Don't forget the 4895's; they are great in both the 308 and '06.
