My SPS Varmint in .308. In a H-S Precision Varmint stock and a Bushnell 4200 scope.
Checking the zero of my scope and fouling the bore before shooting at some steel targets. 15 rounds from 100 yards including from a cold clean bore. There are three separate groups. I adjusted the scope right then up for the last five.
The load was 168 grain Hornady BTHP match with 40 grains or IMR 4320 Remington cases and CCI primers.
I know it's not spectacular but it is decent for this rifle so far. Particularly the clean bore part. Hopefully next week I can find out if it was a fluke.

Not yet. I have 3lbs of Varget that I bought to use in my Enfield's so I will. I also have some 168 grain Amax and some new Winchester cases so I just have to find a little ambition.

yep try 168 amax with 44.4 varget at 2.80-82. I have yet to see a 308 that this load didnt shoot well in. This load is slightly compressed but not hot. hodgon lists 46 grains as max with 168 bullet. Let us know
