Well, I have a 1-13” Palma barrel in .308 that does ok with 155gr boolits, but is marginal with 180’s. It shoots them stabily, but is on the edge.
I think 150’s May work, but I would check the Berger stability website with the bullet you want to use.

Cheers.

Number of grooves changes nothing.
Any brand bullet will work. If target shooting, Sierra make 155gr Palma bullets. This is what I use. If hunting, either 150gr Ballistic Tip or Accubond from Nosler will do the job. You can use Hornady, Berger etc if you desire.

Cheers.
