Guys,
 My neighbor just purchased a new 308 VTR yesterday, and brought it by my house to get me to mount one of our scopes on it. He will be primarily using it to hunt coyotes, but will do a little paper punchin' as well.
 I have mounted a set of Leupold bases/super high dual dovetail rings, holding down a Seeadler 3-9x56w/ #4 reticle.
 O.k., the question is; have any of you got this rifle, and what kind of factory loads do you have the best groups with. I told him I thought Federal Gold Medal Match 168gr would be a good benchmark, but wanted to see what you all have to say. Longest shot on his place will be appx 300 yds. 
He does not reload, so your thoughts on factory stuff only, please.

FGM will be a great start. Black hills also makes some match loads that would work.

best thing to do is try all weights and makes and see what the rifle likes.
