    Does anyone here shoot a 178 gr Amax in .308?

    I am unable to get any publication for loading this bullet and I was wondering if someone would share their load recipe.

    Rifle is a Remington PSS .308 with a 26" barrel. I am using Varget powder.

    I've been using the 178 Amax in my 24' 308 with good results. I started with 44gr varget ww brass fed 210 primer. vel.2710 avg. Worked up to 45.5 gr for2780 avg. still safe in my gun. OOPS 24 feet is a little long. shortened bbl to 24 inches, now it fits in my gun case. [​IMG]
