Has anyone worked up a load with these things and if so give me your feelings on them for 600 yards and in.  Also thinking about working up a load with 150 Gr. SST's for hunting 300 yards and in.  The 168's just have to much humph inside of that. The deer here in Al. are not what you would call monsters. Most are size of big dogs with horns.

Try lapua brass, CCI BR2 primers, 45.5-46 gr. of RL15. This is the OCW load at the high node and you should work up to it. Mine likes it within .006 of lands for best accuracy and you will get excellent velocity out of this load. Used it for SMK loads for target and with 150gr accubonds for deer this year. The accubonds gave surprising accuracy for a hunting bullet with groups of three at 100yds of .240. Give it a try....

SB, I only have experience with 155gr. Lapua Scenars and Sierra Match Kings.
Loaded over Varget and Fed 210M primers, they shot VERY Well for me in a 1 in 12 twist Rem. 308. 
The Scenars shot better than the SMK's.

The only problem Ive encountered is gun related. Ive got a 700 rem. sendero 308. If I load to mag length the accuracy isnt there. But if I load to just off the lands its fine. But then your back to a single shot.
