    .308 reloading powder recommendation.

    Hi..i am looking to see what winchester .308 reloaders are using for there home loading..I will be reloading a 180g Nosler B/T or Hornady SST,i have both hornady and nosler reloading books but they have different ideas on the best powder..i have narrowed it down to IMR 4895 or Varget but would appreciate any help in choosing either of these or maybe some other powder shooters have used or using..many thanks.

    Rel 15 works well or there's H380.

    I have recently tried Ramshot Tac due to the lack of varget and am really pleased with the result, almost cloverleaf stuff

    Use what you can get a constant and reliable supply of. In the end what matters is that you can walk into a shop and buy more of the same powder once you've worked up a reliable load rather than having to change powder every time your run out.

    Accurate arms 2520, readily available cheaper than most and works well. On this occasion ball beats extruded with 168gr in a varmint 1970's sako!
