.308 and Bergers

Hey guys, I am getting a Bullberry 17" .308 barrel from a trade and I am wanting to try out the 168 gr. Berger bullets for elk hunting next year. What are some good loads you have come by? I have heard that the bergers like to seated just into the lands, have you found this to be true? Thanks guys, I cant wait to get my barrel and start reloading for it. I am wanting to try and get an elk at about 300 yards next year with this.

Re: .308 and Bergers

I would have to check-Whatever gets them to shoot the best.
With good muzzle brakes and using riflescopes that have the better eye reliefs it has not been a problem.
On some rigs I don't see a full field of view.
The surface you are shooting on makes a big difference as well.
If it is a slick/smooth surface the gun is going to come back more than off of a bi-pod shooting on dirt.

Try H4895, I shoot this powder in my 17 in encore barrel with very good results with the Berger bullet. Don't give loads as they are just safe in my barrel, yours might not like them.
