    Have you looked through the 5 years of post in the .308 reloading data thread? Lots of info in there.

    Also I’m not on my computer right now so it’s hard to give a complete answer...but you can’t just go off of someone else’s length and charge weights.

    I've had great results with 42.5 gr of imr 4895 with 168 gr bullets. Easily out to 400+ yards. In Kentucky it's hard to find a place to shoot over 400 yards. At my farm I had a 375 yard range across the hay field. A friend had a 400 yard range. We shot 20 oz pop bottles filed with water at the creek. Unfortunately he sold it a few months later.

    Have loaded varget. Best results was with 44 grs. Max ammount is 46.5 grs. Loaded a few in commercial federal cases. Cases bulged to where couldn't close the bolt.
