    You will have to buy and try I'm afraid then look at yourself when things don't go well.
    I'ts usually the "nut behind the but" that's the trouble.
    Can be expensive fun trying to sort that out.

    Buy 20 PPU, if they work, you will have saved a fortune.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    I use 150gr federal power shocks in mine, not cheap but they do what i ask of them.

    Trail and Error on that one Terrier, you'll have to try a few Makes and when you get a good round that groups well

    go for it. Bear in mind when you do, get as many as you are permited as they sometimes vary in different batches'

    ( no doubt you will check your ZERO no and then !!)

    + 1 For buying as many as possible all the same batch number at the same time.
    Today I witnessed two batches of RWS 243 (same bullet) shoot 200ft/sec different speed from the same rifle. Over my chronograph!
    Long live reloading!

    I'll be honest and IMO.

    If it goes bang and if your set a good zero whatever you send down range at 100m will be good enough. In that respect privi is all you ever need and at 55/100 you'd be crazy not to try. I've shot reds and sika with ppu, they fall over just fine with a tight grouping on paper for the price.

    I know of two other .308 rifles that shoot fine with PPU.
    My old PH and a new Howa.
