New to rifle loading - From the forum many have adivsed and convinced me the VARGET powder is pretty good. I havenít been in Canada or Midwest for hunting season in many years to I still use only 150 grain bullets here in Fl - I would use at least 180 grains on some of the deer in Wisconsin - I have a used Savage (.308) Mod 11 and accuracy is outstanding !!!!!

These loads shot with Hornady 168 match HPBTs, through a Savage Model 12 BVSS produced groups .262 @ 100 yds and a best of .202 @ 100 yds. Most through the same hole but that last one always has to make its own hole. Hope this helps out, Anyone else shooting the 12 BVSS in .308 pass me some info on your loads, thanks.

168gr BTHP 47.5 grH-414 2,680 fps2.800" CCI LR guest
LC67 Cases. Sierra bullets. Typically use CCI-BR2 primers, although logically the ball powder should do well with W-W LR, as they are a little hotter. This load has shot below 0.5 MOA in several rifles (bolt and gas) and I have not had to juggle the powder charge much to get it to perform. Typically it will level off where two consecutive 0.5 grain intervals will shoot well. Meters great. In theory, H-414 may be a little slow for a .308 Garand.

Additional information: This load was developed for my Stoner SR-25 Match Rifle and came out of an American Rifleman article on .308 match loads. The OAL is in millimeters. The bullets are Sierra 168gr. Matchkings. I have made one change: When I use moly bullets(which will be all the time after the others are used)I ground off the expander ball on the dies so that i get full neck tension on the bullet! Only use Winchester LR primers in the Stoner rifle. In my gun these are one hole rounds at 100 yards and they shoot well out to 1000 yards. I use only IMI match brass.

42.0gr Varget, 168gr Speer Match Gold, once-fired Nosler custom brass, CCI-BR2 primers. Brass was full length sized, trimmed, chamafered and had the flash hole deburred. Best load to date in my Steyr tactical elite. Average in my last outing with this load was 0.46" center-to-center @100 yards, best group was 0.19", worst was 0.84". I’m still new to this, so I’m hoping it will settle down toward the lower range of things as I learn to do my part.
