    308 load using vhit 160

    Looking for a load for a 308 using vhit 160 for 150g heads can't seem to find much info on vhit 160 lots on 140 any ideas ta Stuart.

    I would think that N160 is far to slow a powder for 308w. Thats why you aren't finding data for it.

    Search the recent threads here on that vary subject, and the better alternatives.

    Stuart. Good to see you on Saturday. N140 is recommended for this application.

    Ooooooh too slow! As the others have said n140 is the go to powder for 308 but n135 would be good too

    N160 will work, pushing a 220gr pill up a 32" tube. But seriously, N140 for mid weight 308 loads
