    I am looking for some advice with reloads on my remington 700 sps varmint chambered in 308. Barrel length is 26" with a 12" twist. I have changed out the stock with a Bell and Carlson Medalist Light Tactical Rifle Stock Remington 700 BDL Short Action with Aluminum Bedding and the trigger with a Jewel, 1lb trigger pull.

    The load I am using is a SMK 175 gr with 41 gr Varget and a COAL of 2.90 sitting .15 off the lands. I am using remington brass and winchester large rifle primers. FPS is around 2400. Currently I am getting 1" groups or less at 200 yds.

    I want to get the best accuracy that I can out of this rifle and any advice that the LRH community can give would be helpful. My main concern is the twist rate and the weight of the bullet I am using. Is this bullet to heavy is the FPS too little? Help!
