    Newbie here. Lots of products out there and hoping to get recommendations for the best combo bullet, brass, powder for hunting (and target) elk and deer out to 300 yards. Thanks for any help.

    There are many options for the 308. For 300 yard shooting and hunting any bullet in the 180gr range intended for hunting will work. Berger, Nosler, Barnes, Hordany....all will work. If "I" had to choose my start would be with this:

    Lapua Brass
    210M Primer
    Varget powder
    180gr AccuBond

    for targets most use a 168 or 175, and varget or I-4064. riflemansjournal and 24hourcampfre have other loads.
