Anyone have any load data for imr 4064 in a 308. Gonna use a 165 sgk. My hornady manual doesn't list the powder for 165gr. I've looked at the hodgen website and a sierra manual. Just wanting a couple more sources if y'all have some. Thanks

Thanks. I've found some pet loads but was wanting published info. The sierra manual and hodgen website has a big difference on the max load.

I use 4064 in 30-40 Krag with excellent results. It is one of the most versatile powders there is. I love the way it smells.

4064 is hard to beat in a 308,,some rifles will prefer Varget or RL15 or a number of other powders for better accuracy or more FPS but if it wont shoot 4064 at least pretty good you may have problems

Thanks for the input. Tried a load yesterday and wasn't pleased. Just gotta find the right combo and it'll be good to go.
