V V 135 in a .308 ??

I have a bunch of 135 from a 6br project.. I'm wondering if it will work in a .308 with 155-175smk's ...??

thanks,
Pat

    155s, definately. 42gr broke 2700 in the 26" barrel I developed the load for. Start around 37.
    175s, maybe. I haven't had much success in getting them to shoot well, but it is doable if your goal is putting lead downrange... who knows... it may be great in yours. I got mucho pressure signs at 43.7 and 2600... id guess max at about 41 or a little less... but watch your stuff.

    This powder, VV 135 is the most accurate powder for me in several .308's. Especially with the 155 grain Sierra bullet. I only wish I had more of it, but being a PPC shooter, I'm stuck with lots of VV 130 and VV 133... Not such a bad thing I guess!
