Does anyone know of a decent .308" 100 gr bullet that would work on varmints and be semi-accurate? Or is this too much to ask, lol.

Four years ago I got some 80 gr. .308 cal bullets from Richard Graves to try out. IIRC I tried them in my 300 WM pd gun and they were OK, but not what I was after at the time. I think they would be "semi-accurate".
I still have ten left. If you want to try them, PM me with your address and I will send them to you.
I don't know if Richard is still in business or what????
I know this is really crazy, but if I was in your state, I would be trying to make my own. Not from scratch, but I would take something like the 110 Vmax and cut off the plastic tip, and weigh the thing. I am assuming this won't be enough, but you don't have to stop there. I would chuck a few in my lathe and cut them back until I got to 99 grains. If you don't have a lathe handy, file the front off until you get there. Load them up and see what you get. What have you waisted, a few bullets and a little time.
I have shot V-max before with the tips nocked off. Couldn't tell any difference.
The pds won't be able to tell you either.......
