Get some RL 15. If we cant get a good load worked up for your rifle, Ill buy it from ya.

Looks like the 165gr gets the most votes.

I shoot with several guys that really like the 308`s and 1 powder with the 150 class bullets that will make one hammer is the new IMR8208. If you want to get a powder for the 150 class weight that seems to work in a bunch of rifles then give the 8208 a try, Tim.

I use BLC2 with bullet weights from 125-168 gr with great sucess. Check their website and work up .5gr til you find what your gun likes. If that still dosen't work, have the crown of your barrel checked. Mine was off. Had it recrowned and worked the loads back up. Whadya know .750 3 shot groups @ 200yds.
