    Since quite a few people on this board use the 308, I was wondering what is the best load combo for shooting 1k+. Say going from a 175gr up to a 240gr (if it would work).

    The 190 JLK with Hodgdon 4350, or the Berger 185 with the same powder. [​IMG]

    Texas,

    My best 1K loads:

    Rifle: Factory Win Stealth
    Brass: Lapua
    Primers: Fed 210M
    Powder: Varget 45gr
    Bullet: 175SMK bright
    OAL 2.827"

    This load goes 2715 out of a factory 26" barrel/chamber. No pressure at 110*

    My most accurate load inside 300 yards:

    Brass: Winchester.Black Hills (156gr)
    Primer: WLR
    Powder: Varget 44.2
    Bullet: 175SMK bright
    OAL: 2.827"
    MV: 2625fps

    To track the M3LR 30-06 turret, same as load 1, except 44.4gr Varget.

    S1 what lenght barrel was that in?

    Fatboy, I've been out of the loop a little while now. When you say the M3LR 30-06 turret what are you referring to [​IMG].

    The reason why I was asking is becuase I just got a GRENDELL SRT in 308. It's very nice and compact (folding stock) [​IMG]. Don't know if it will reach out to 1k+ [​IMG] but will be trying [​IMG]. Any imput for such a short barrel would be a great help.
