Use Varget!!!!!!!!!!! It is THE tried and proven powder for .308.
If shooting LR, get the max velocity possible.
My load:
155 SMK moly coated
46.5gr Varget
Federal 210 Primers
Federal Brass

2866 avg velocity from my 26" barrel and no pressure signs whatsoever.
23moa elevation from a 100yd zero to do cold bore hits at 850yds.

Works for me.
