.308 Reloading data only
This is thread for .308 recipes only. This is a spin off of the .308 Shooters Only thread. In this thread I would like nothing but .308 load information as well as your rifle specs. I want to start a nice detailed listing of loads for everyone to have access to and a place to help others develop there own loads.
This thread is for nothing but .308 reloading. Let's keep it on track and not get side tracked.
I APOLOGIZE FOR DELETING ALL OF THE PREVIOUS LOADS i ADDED FROM A DIFFERENT THREAD BUT IN AN EFFORT TO NOT CAUSE ANY PROBLEMS i DELETED THEM AS AS i WAS ASKED.

.308 Win Load Data:
175 SMK, Hornady Match brass, 44.3 gr Varget, Fed 210M primer, COL 2.81" Good load, no numbers with me.
175 SMK, Lapua Brass, 43.5 gr Varget, Fed 210M primer, COL ~2.8". SD 10.8, ES 23. Good load, Av Velocity is 2686 fps @ 10'.
175 SMK, Hornady Match Brass, 42 gr H4895, Fed 210M primer, COL ~2.8". Good load, no numbers. (Loaded for friend, he reported them to be "Money as F_ _ _")
All Winchester brass. Reduce by .4 grains if using Lake City, or Federal brass. Reduce by .3 grains if using Lapua brass.
155 grain Sierra Matchking (or any comparable 155 grain match bullet)
45.6 grains of IMR 4895
46.5 grains of Varget, IMR 4064, or W748
there is a high node with Varget at about 47.8 grains (Nosler's max is 48 grains).
168 grain Sierra Matchking (or any comparable 168 grain match bullet)
43.6 grains of IMR 4895 (my all time favorite accuracy load)
44.5 grains of Varget or IMR 4064 or W748
there is a high node with Varget at or near 46 grains, Hodgdon's max...
39.0 grains of IMR 3031 (slower, but very accurate to 300 yards, a great close range tactical load).
175 Sierra Matchking
43.5 Varget, or 45.0 Varget (high node, be careful).
42.4 grains IMR 4895
43.4 grains of IMR 4064 (high node)
42.2 grains of IMR 4064 (low node)
43.5 grains of RL15
With 178 AMAX (Hornady)
42.0 grains IMR 4895
43.1 grains of Varget
43.0 grains of IMR 4064 (high node)
41.8 grians of IMR 4064 (low node)
43.1 grains of RL15
190 grain Sierra Matchking
40.9 grains of IMR 4064
200 grain Sierra Matchking
40.2 grains of IMR 4064
These load recipes are approximate (but very close) to where the accuracy nodes are. Work up from a grain or two below, to be safe.
Wow guys! This is great!
Awesome! I'll be sure to post all my info when I get to loading in the next few weeks.
-I redefined trust between my wife and I. I bought her a gun, taught her to shoot, and made her the beneficiary on my life insurance.
My "Go To Loads for my Remington 5-R Milspec.
175 gr Nosler Custom Comp
CCI BR-2 Primer
43.5 gr Varget
I also use the same components with a Hornady 178gr A-Max which performs pretty much the same. I use this when I want an expanding bullet.
Second load for this rifle
168 gr Nosler Custom Comp
Wolf or Tula Large Rifle Primer
44.5 gr Varget
Again, I sub the 168 gr Hornady A-Max when I want an expanding bullet with almost identical performance.
savage 110 with benchmark 24" 1/10 twist.
go to load is:
43gr IMR 4064
this chamber is set up for the heavies (so work your way up) and does a great jod out to 1400 yard with the 190 smk, the 208gr A-max also amazing in this gun, but impossible to find right now.
Remington 700 Police, 26"
Federal Gold Medal case trimmed to 2.006
SMK 175g HPBT
Federal LR primer
2.231 comparator length
Curious what your velocity was. Mine was up around 2800 fps at 44.3.
