    Help with a 308 bullet for 1-12 twist

    Looking for suggestion for weight for a 308 bullet for both target and hunting deer and yotes. 308 with 1-12 twist barrel 23.6 long. Would 150-155 work better than 168 grn.
    thanks

    itch,

    I would try the 150's, 155's, 168's, and 175's to see which your rifle prefers. I thought my 1in12" twist Rem700 .308 would like the 155's or 168's and my rifle actually likes the 175's the best. My most accurate load is 175gr. SMK.
    Do you reload? or are you looking for good factory ammo?

    If you want a bullet for both targets and hunting the Sierra Game Kings are a great compromise .... also the A-Max ballistic tip projectiles.

    This kind of question generally is resolved only at the gun after a set of load developments. It is dependent on both the bullets chosen, the gun in use, and to some degree the skill of the reloader.

    I concur with the suggestion of using game king bullets as a starting point.
