    Don't you beleive it. I shoot it well past 600 regularly with good results. Nothing wrong with the 178 if you've got a load built for it. It's all in what your particular rife likes best.

    I have some 8208XBR. I don't think I ever seen any load data for 308. I don't imagine it fills the case very full. How many grains did you start with? I did buy a box of 175 Matchkings, gonna give them a try also.

    I believe I started out at around 40. I have been using 8208 XBR in 22-250, 204 and 308. I really like it in all three.

    Whatever load-bullet you deceide on, I wish you the best of luck with it and I hope it's as accurate as you want it to be

    For ground hogs in the 308 win I use 46 grs IMR 4895 and a Speer 125 TNT. Pretty flat shooting and really accurate and has a HIGH splat factor.

    Re: 308 Loads

    For groundhogs the 110gr bullets are hard to beat. You can run them pretty darn fast and they are brutal on target.

    My 10 twist Savage liked the Hornady V-Maxes at something like 3200fps if I recall correctly.
