    shot them out of the tactical and didn't find a group that worked. went with the SMK 168. still have to try bergers and Amax.

    I have the SPS Varminter in .308 and just picked a box of the 165gr SST....I was going to try it with Varget powder since that's what I have on hand. I am new to reloading and still trying to find .308 brass. Once I get the brass I can start loading and trying them out. Right now I shoot the 168Gr winchester silvertip factory ammo with good success for factory ammo. Only problem is they are 2x as expensive as the SST's for reloading. I didn't want to go with the SMK or A-Max's because I wanted to go with a hunting bullet since that's what I use the rifle for.
