I have some 124 and 137 grain hammer hunters. Have IMR 4064, 8208xbr, and some Ramshot Tac. Where would you start with a 308 with a 22” barrel? I was going to look at Nosler load data but there isn’t a lot of info with these powders

First time loader so I don’t need a hot rod load.

What bullet are you using and how is accuracy?
I was using the 124HH bullet that posters above are referring to. Accuracy was about moa at 400yds. Normally, I can get the Hammers to shot better than that so I'm still working with them in my .308Win.

FWIW - the 130 Barnes TTSX will shoot into .5 moa @ 400yds with Benchmark in this particular rifle. Velocity is right at 3,130 ft/sec.
