Rem-LTR 308 deer load

Last year I used the 125NBT in the LTR for deer. Killed 3 all bang-flop.
All 3 @ 175-200yds.
I have a better scope and want to streach it out some this year.
Can you give me a good bullet-powder combo to get me to 500 yds.
All shots are from elevated box stands with a very good rest. Bags for the frt. and rear of the stock.
This rifle will shoot MOA to 400 with 175 FGMM. I haven't tried it past 400.

I use a 155g Berger VLD in front of 43.5g or R15 Lapua cases and CCI BR2 primers. With this load I will shoot to 800yds before I think twice.

The pet load for my 308 is a 175VLD over 44.5grains RL15 with a Winchester primer.

155 VLD's and 43 to 44 grs IMR 4895 will getter done.
I shot one deer last year with this bullet and 44 grs IMR 4895 and it blew a hole through both shoulders with an exit hole the size of a base ball.

I too use the 125 NBT @ 3050 fps for deer in a 308 Win but have never shot anything over 300 yards with it. Everything I have ever shot with the 125 NBT has been bang flop even in my 30X47 HBR at 2850 fps. I have killed around 20 deer with this bullet with one, last year, being the largest buck I have ever shot. It was a 9 point that went close to 200 lbs live weight. I shot it at 107 yards and it dropped like a rock and never even quivered. I shot it with my 30X47 HBR.
