    Hi Bk are you shooting long range paper or some very big foxes?

    For paper I've just got some 150grn Matchkings to try in 308 & 30-06 so will be interested in what replies you get.

    You didn't ask, but I'll through this in. Use H4350. If it don't shoot that well you need an exorcist! capt david

    I've never used Viht 160, hard to find out here, but I have shot a lot of 165's & 168's through a number of 06's and I have to agree with Capt david. Any of the 4350's, Hodgdon, imr, etc. performed very consistantly in my rifles, I never state powder wieghts on line, but I've found that near max loads( after being worked up to) performed the best.I prefer H4350 as its not so temperature sensitive,a big consideration in this part of the world.

    Sorry I didn't mean to hijack your post lol
    Good Luck AB

    Thanks for your input, I listed Viht 160 as that's the brand my local dealer tends to stock. He also has H4831 if anyone has pet loads for that?

    This one is out of Ken Waters Pet Loads,165 gr Hornady s-p b t 60 grs H4831, Federal 215 primer, Federal cases at an averaged 2831 fps in a 24 inch barrel, COAL 3.30 inches. He was getting 5/8 inch, averaged, groups at 100 yrds. I got about 1 to 1 1/4 out of my rifle, which is still quite good.As always , start low and work up,so much for not giving loads online

    Good luck AB
