    308 steyr ssg loads please

    Hi guys I shoot a 308 steyr ssg p1 Im looking for load data for hornady 155g Amax bullets I live in the UK so powders are limited at the moment on my shelf Iv got vitavouri n140 n160 and a tub of varget.
    Any help would be appreciated. Iv also got some 168g sierra match kings.
    I am limited to 1ooyds 200yds or 300yd ranges any shooting over these distances would be highly unlikely due to the ranges I have access to.
    Although I would love to have a go at 600 or a 1000yds just once in my life.

    Varget should be a good powder to work with. All rifles, even those with the same manufacturer, have a bit different need, so you should work a load up for best results. Here's a site with a pretty broad scope of loads of different bullet, powder , primer & brass loads . There are loads for both Varget and N140 listed.
