Reloading the .308?

What is your pet load for the .308?
I get great accuracy with H4064.

    I also use and get great results with IMR-4064. My load consists of the following componants.
    Lapua brass
    Nosler Custom Comp bullets 168 gr.
    43.5 gr IMR 4064
    CCI-BR-2 primer
    2.850 OAL

    Load consistantly prints 1/2" or less for 10 shot groups out of my 3 308 tactical rifles. TRG-22, FN-SPRA2, and Kimber Advanced Tactical. All 3 rifles have a 1/12 twist. Hope this helps.

    For deer size game I have two loads that I have used for years.
    44 grs IMR 4895, Federal (turned neck) cases, CCI BR-2 primer, 150 Sierra Game King.

    This is the load that I use for under 300 yards on deer.
    46 grs IMR 4895, WW case, CCI-BR2, 125 Nosler ballistic tip. Wicked on deer.

    R15 for me tried all the others but R15 gets the best speeds.
