    Looking for a beginning load for a 308 Win. Bbl length is 24" with a 12 twist. Would like to use 168 SMK and 155 Palmas. Thanks,

    For your 24" tube, try starting with 42.0 of RL-15 and Varget for the 168 and 46 of Varget and RL-15 for the 155. These are just to start, work up in .5 grain increments from there. Try those 2 powders, and choose the overall best one. One of those will give you what you want.
