I need to load some .308 Win with 175 gr SMK and I was thinking about using VARGET.
Rem 700 26 in R5 Mil Spec 11.25 in twist.
I am wondering what you guys are loading the 175 SMK with.
Hogdon site shows 42gr Varget at 2583fps and 45 gr of Varget at 2690
It would seem that both Black Hills and Federal Gold Metal Match are loaded at 2600fps
That leaves me thinking about 44.6 gr of Varget ????? but my Sierra book is 35yrs old and doesnt have 175s or Varget and my new Horniday book shows 43.2 gr Varget at 2500 as max.
I found a couple of loads on the net but I'm wondering what you guys are using?
