    I have a 308 with a short barrel and aggressive twist, 1-10, any recommendations for a hunting load that's pretty accurate? I expect I'll junt under 300 yards with this rifle.

    I have small rifle primers, br2 primers, varget, and several other powders but no bullets yet to try.

    I got a couple of pm's thanks.

    Also, anyone shooting a light bullet 120-140 out of these that will stabilize in a 1-10? What powder and primer for that?

    Thanks

    BR2 and Varget? Shoot heavy Berger hunting VLD's.
