ive tryed all sorts of 308 bullet combos/loads over the years, some good,some not so good, but ive now come to the thinking (at long last) speed doenst kill accuracy does and bullet drop is only a issue if you dont know it !!!!!
so the plan of action was to load a 180 grain sp 308 bullet which would be suitable for deer,boar,goat etc etc ,a one bullet kill all situation then learn the drop then practice and more practice .
i went to see mike norris at brock and norris and as always he was very helpful, i told him my plan and he straight away had the answer that was
180 grain sierra SPBT
44 Grains N150
i loaded 25 up and went and tryed them this afternoon they came out at 2502 fps average, out of a 20 inch standard factory 308 browning xbolt.
this was the first 3 shot group , im leaving it well alone that will do me one bullet kill all success
