    Has anyone experimented w/ 4831 in a 308 behind these heavier berger bullets? I'm thinking about pushing a 200+ pill in a 28" barrel. Suggestions? Real life data?

    I know varget is a popular 308 powder, but that's usually shooting lighter pills. I'd imagine behind these heavier bullets and a little extra barrel one could use a slower powder. Thoughts?
