    Have used vit n140 with good results on a hornady 150 gr bullet. I played around with the loading finding 43.1 gr the best, then altered length to 2.825. Four bullets at range, one hole!!

    I have used n140 too. Often between 44 and 45 with 150g btsp interlocks but up to 46 with Speer 150 flat base spitzer which was doing 2900 out of a minimum saami spec chamber

    N140 is a solid go-to for the .308, likewise Varget but the N140 is quite a bit cheaper.
    N140 is very versatile in this cartridge and I found I could vary charges quite a lot without losing accuracy.

    44.5gr N140 gives 2770fps for me with 150g interlocks in lapua brass
