Re: 308 Loads

I'm using 43 Gr 4064 with a CCI BR primer in a DPMS heavy barrel and getting groups in the 3's and a very low SD, I found this load on a benchrest web site and I can't remember where. It's tough to get old my rememberer doesn't work like it used to. As always start lower and work up to this.

Anyone new to loading the .308, and maybe some veterans as well, should take a look at this article. Very good, well worth the read:

168 Amax shoot o.k. for me. I now read that 168 is no good beyond 600 yrds.
175 recommended.
