    IMR 4064. Excellent powder for 308 at least.~Muir

    For the .308, IMR 4064, RL-15, Varget, N140 and N150, 4350... depends on the bullet, of course.

    Definately N140 for the .308 works a treat on mine with 150grn bullets

    N140, very consistent with numerous bullet weights,Tim Hannam has just had a delivery??..C

    Thanks all I use 125grain for.308 and .87grain for .243 both group very well so would like a powder that could do the same more research into availabilaty of ramshot tac. I think plus N140 loads. Martin
