I have just recently started reloading and am trying to develop some loads for a couple of different .308 rifles and I am not getting very good results but since I have also just started shooting from the prone position off of a Harris Bipod I'm not 100% sure that the inaccuracy is in my loads or whether the recoil is having a big affect on my shooting from the prone position. The rifle I'm mainly concerned with getting more accuracy from is a Rem 700 Tactical Compact (XCR) 20". I have shot some really tight groups with it when I first got it using some Federal 168gr match rounds but was shooting off of a bench with the rifle seated down in a sack of corn. I don't recall the MOA of the groups but they were tight and I was very pleased with it. Now that I'm trying to develop a load for this rifle and now shooting off of a Bipod I've tried 3 different bullets, different charges and different seating depths and am getting between 1.6 and 2.0 MOA which is no where near what I have done with this rifle previously. Now on the other hand I've loaded several different combinations for my 22-250 and also shooting from the prone position and I always stay around the 0.48 to 0.51 MOA with that. I know I should go buy some more Federal Match bullets and try them from the prone position or either try my reloads from a bench and corn sack but at the moment that's not feasible so I'm just asking for thoughts from you guys that have done more prone position shooting and more reloading of .308's than myself. Just another thought to add in, my spread is mostly all vertical yet the last batch of loads I shot only had a velocity spread of 9 fps per my chrono.
