Re: Powders for 308

Denwa:
Thank you for your input. It seems to me that I'm not being stupid...of course any load would be accuracy tested. Part of that testing would have to include an evaluation of velocities and the standard deviation of velocities for a given load. This is important because a load that has a large standard deviation would be inaccurate at long range in terms of elevation.

Re: Powders for 308

I meant don't get so focused on SD's ES's and FPS's. If you are focused on the little things don't forget that accuracy is most important despite what all the figures say.

Our brothers serving this evening don't have hand loaded perfect ammo. That M118LR is not the best ES ammo out there Yet they have made some VERY impressive shots with it at 1000yds+ Also Fed Gold Medal Match isn't better than Black Hills in ES but it seems to shoots better for a lot of folks and is considered the "Gold Standard" for accuracy.

BTW Where do you shoot near Falls Church? I'm on MoCo Maryland.

DENWA:
Thanks for the wisdom. I'll do my best not to get lost in the minutae.

In terms of shooting in the area, I have three places that I frequent....

Clark Brothers Guns in Warrenton: Clark Brothers Guns | Warrenton, Virginia, gun dealer, dealers, ffa, ammo, antique, rare, handguns, shooting range The range is only 100 yards and you have to buy your ammo or reloading supplies from the gun shop. It's how they keep the range "free"

Sleepy Creek WMA in West Virginia: West Virginia DNR - Shooting Ranges This range has a 200 yard maximum.

And for the 1k shooting....Quantico MCB
