    Working up some loads for a custom .308 deer rifle. I've fooled around with almost every bullet made for the .308. Ended up with the 155 gr A-Max shooting the tightest groups.
    Here's a group that will be hard for me to beat:

    Thanks guys. I shot several impressive groups today but the .308/A-Max group took the cake. :D

    Never tried the 155s, but the 168s will 'bug hole' at 200 yards out my 308 with 44 gr of 4064.

    Nice shooting!
