Re: A couple from the UK

Just got trebark's email.

My current load is actually 48grs of RL17 under a 208 A-max. I have gone up to 48.2grs but accuracy was best right at 48.
I'm shooting a 28" 1-11tw Hart. I'm still messing with the seating depth but so far looking very promising. 208gr pill at 2610fps from a .308win isn't too shabby.

Some other bullets and powders to try for a LR .308win load would be VV-N540, VV-N550, W760, and H4350. As for bullets, try the 190 VLD, 210 VLD, and 208 A-max. The 190 will stabilize in a 1-12tw. Could also try the heavy weight gameking bullets (I think there is one ~200grs) for hunting.

There is another good thread on this site about A-maxs for hunting, specifically heavy-for-caliber ones at slower velocity (like a 208 from a .308).

Hope this helps,
Oliver

if you have any questions or need load data, just shoot me a pm.

Re: A couple from the UK

Was just so into the .308 load data, forgot to comment on your AWSOME rigs!! You right ganders habe such a sweet selection to choose from!! Also very nice scopes! Wish I could afford glass like that, bet they cost even more over in the UK. Funny how that works, you guys order scopes from the states, and I ordered my Falcon Optics scopes from England...

Re: A couple from the UK

Hi Oliver,
Thanks for your info ref: the .308 loads...its something I am looking into..
My Sako TRG also has a 1-11 twist tube, but only 26 inches..Im sure to be hard pushed to nudge 2600fps ...we will see .!

The Nightforce NXS series scopes over here retail at 1430.00 for the 5.5-22x56 ( $2236.00 )
It has taken me a long time to get the kit together that I have now, some good deals and some good friends helps a lot ...

Thanks for the `heads up` on the other thread ..

Regards..
