Re: Whats everyone\'s fav. .308 LR load??
For target shooting - 190gr SMK's pushed by 41gr of Varget, 0.003" off the lands
For hunting - 180gr Accubonds with 43gr of Varget - COAL 2.873" (0.003 off the lands with this round)
Also successful - 178gr Amax with 44 gr of Varget, 0.010" off the lands
I had great luck with 168gr SMK's and 48 gr of H380 in cold weather. This powder sucks in the AZ desert in hot weather.
All of these are in fire-formed, neck-sized Lapua brass, and are lit with Fed 210M primers, and all yield 0.5 MOA or smaller at 10 yards with my Savage 10FP. The 168s are overstabilized and show a BC drop past about 450 yards.
Attitude is EVERYTHING!
