Nowler can shoot with us anytime! Only difference is we use Winchester standard rifle primers, Overall Length is 2.830" regardless of rifle. Also use a lot of Winchester aka Black Hills Ammol brass.

41.4 gr of H-335 under a Nosler 168 gr J4 over fed 210 primers inside winchester brass. .025 shorter than the mag for good feeding and full length sized mostly cuz I don't own neck sizing dies.

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.

For the 1in12 .308 Win. I am now shooting, I use 48.0grs of I-4320 under a 155gr Lapua Scenar and 210s in a Lapua case. Other .308s have used N135.
