I use Hodgdon's data for the 155 grain Sierra Palma Match. I'm loading 45.5 grains. The load spread for Varget is 44 to 47 grains. It is one-hole accurate from my 11" twist Savage Long Range Hunter seated to just under 2.8" in trimmed cases and crimped with a Lee FCD. I have not shot them at long distance but I think these would make a good 600 yard load, for sure.~MuirHello folks
Tikka T3x Varmint .308
24" barrel 1:11 twist
New Lapua scenar 155
If any of you don't mind to share any good long range and accurate recipe for this powder and bullet in 308, I'll appreciate that.
44.0 gr RL-15 works with 155, 165, 168 SMK, and 175 SMK and A-Max.
If the EU is allowing RL-15, how about Alliant 2000-MR? It is dense, so you can put more into the case, slower burning, and will push the 155-gr SMK at a very accurate 2,950 FPS out of a 24-inch barrel .308 Win, like my Steyrs. 47.5 grains will launch a 175 or 178 at 2,750.
Thanks for the reply.
And another thing is , when I'm load data to the QuickLoad with this bullet head and 45.8 varget show up warning with 61700psi near Pmax and 46gr or over shows more than 62000psi which is the maximum for the. 308 case.
So is it possible to be like that, because the bullet is longer than usual 155 bullets, even is longer than 175smk or QuickLoad has some kind of mistake.
