Can't help on the loading info, but I have shot a lot of the V-max through my 300 WM pd gun. Very good choice IMO for the range you are looking for. Driven fast they can come apart, but you likely won't get to that point in a 308.
I try to wait for a pd laying on the mound to line up facing me and then shoot him in the nose. In this way the pd is getting the full effect of the V-max. What is left is wee little pd parts spread over 30 feet behind the mound. It is the closest thing you can get to "vaporizing" a pd.
The 125 NBT is my choice from 400 to 750 yds. It is not as frangible as the 110, but it will open them up quite well. I have had better luck with the 125 when driven fast, and they are a little more accurate in my rifle.
