- 2735fps out of a 26" barrel
- 2580fps out of a 20" barrel
- SD <15fps!
So, WHAT powder is less temperature sensitive and will give THAT velocity, with only 40gr!?!?
My Varget ( And Benchmark ) has been growing spiderwebs and hearing sounds of crickets ever since I got my bulk order of IMR 8208 XBR from Powder Valley.
In my 20" 308 , I am getting 2620 with 175 gr Berger VLD's and 42.3 gr of the XBR with awesome groups. After buying a few 1 pounders and experimenting....I went ahead with the 8 pounders.
Give the XBR a try......its extremely temperature in
sensitive ( Prob the best out there at the moment ) and as a side bonus flows through a powder measure like butter.
