Default Request for Recipe (.308), also info to share *NEW PROJECT*

Let's start a thread for .308!!

I know a lot of guys are using 175SMK, 155Scenar.... guys, please post your recipe...

Randall, since you have that nice program.... can you please post some "calculated" numbers for 168SMK, 175SMK, 155 Scenar, 155 SMK/Nosler Palma, etc..

Again, the info in this thread is BY NO MEANS a guide..... all this is, is an *idea* for you, so that you can start low and then work up your load.....


--------------------------


Here is some background info from 6mmbr.com:

My gun.....

Remington 700 SPS stock 1-12 barrel cut to 22.25 with a muzzle break brings it to 24".

My loads.....

155 Scenars - RL15 46.5g, Winchester Brass, CCI BR2 primers, seated to 2.82 velocities are just over 2900 fps. Something like 2910 to 2920.

175g SMKs - RL15 45.5g, Winchester brass, CCI BR2 seated to 2.8. Velocities are just over 2780 fps.

I may back it down to 45g since that seemed a little to hot. No pressure signs but I want to get as close to 2700 even as possible. Next development range trip will load a selection between 45 and 45.4 to see what is happy.

Reading the above article is a lot faster than everyone posting personal loads. Especially some of the loads I use coincide with some mentioned in that above article.

Been using the 155 scenars for a while now and see no need to use anything else. 44.8gr Varget, WLR, RA60 brass. Gives me about 2830 avg. out of my 24in 10fp. I'll let you know what it does out of an SPS Varmint I have coming. I decided my R+D build is going to be a .260

I dunno, personally I prefer to use the Speer 125 gr HP-TNT's in my Model 700 Synthetic Varmint 308. Less perceived recoil and unless you are shooting much past 200 yards, probably every bit as accurate as any other bullet out there in the expensive bullet category. Super high priced boat tailed bullets are really not needed in the under 200 yard ranges we have local to the bay area. I can shoot sub MOA groups practically all day with my setup and load. My preference is 45 gr of IMR 4895 with the Speer 125's. An older old reliable powder that I actually have a fair amount on hand currently. I think the velocity is up in the 3000 fps range..

You can find all pricing(rough) info on www.powdervalleyinc.com

Do the math yourself. All depends on what you use, new Lapua brass is $0.50 each but you can get N-number of reloads out of it.

Roughly, $.35-.40 each if you have brass.
- premium bullet (eg 175SMK) ~$.25
- powder ~$.10
- primer ~$.02

Can get down below $.30 each if you use cheaper bullets (168Nosler)

I have an Armalite AR10/20''barrel A2. A friend gave me 500 nato brass 7.62x51. I've been loading it for about .35 ea.
Then I discoverd the 7.62X54R CZ Steel case,corrosive berdain primed. I just wanted the bullets. Got a few and pulled them down. they are a 147gr. bullet with 46.2gr. of a stick powder..? Looked like a modern smokless powder. Ammo was made in 1986. So, I started with 42gr of this mystery powder and worked up to 43gr using the same bullets. Thats as far as I'm going. I'm about to run out of case space and they are as hot or a little hotter than federal factory loads. So now I'm loading my 7.62x51 "308" for about .21 ea.

Have you checked the bullet diameter? 7.62 Russian calibers are usually .311 rather than .308. It has to do with measuring to the lands rather than the groves. You may be resizing your bullets and doing God knows what to your barrel. Better check those bullets.

Hummmm! Maybe that's why they hold such a tight group. The only problem I have right now is the powder is really nasty! I can only get about 250 rounds out before I have to clean the chamber in my AR10. Thanks for the heads up.

Anyone have any good recipe's for a 26" Rem 700P?

Its seems loads that approach high levels of pressure do not work for it as well. I have had success with 41.5 grains of Varget with 168smk but I am afraid that the velocity is a little slow for longer range accuracy...

Any ideas?

I figure I got it to about $0.40 cents a pop for my 155g load. So about $20 a 50. Grafs deal pricing for Lapua 155 factory loads is $24 a box of 20. Black Hills 175 is $20 a box dealer pricing at Midway.

I shoot 175 SMK's in my M1a Sub-moa with 42.5 gr of imr 4895, cci 200's in a LC Match case.

I shoot 168 gr SMK's and Nosler custom comps in the same rifle with 41.5 gr of imr 4895, cci 200's, LC Match case all sub-moa.

I've tried up to 43 gr with the above bullets with no pressure signs.

you should also ask people to put their rifle, barrel length, and twist rate. results will vary from each rifle.

These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.
USE ONLY FOR COMPARISON !

59 loads produced a Loading Ratio below user-defined minimum of 80%. These powders have been skipped.

C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.

C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.

I use 47.0 grains of a 2006 lot of Hodgdon's Varget in Winchester cases, 210M primers, and Sierra 155's. Average velocity on a really cold day- it was 38 and windy, this is California ; ) - was 2985 fps out of a 30" barrel. ES / SD weren't all that impressive, but the rounds held great elevation at 800, 900, and 1,000 yards. Interestingly, this is the same load I used with a 2002 lot of Varget where the average was 2995 fps.

There's been a lot of griping in some circles that Varget is somewhat variable from lot to lot. I've talked to quite a few people that talk about Varget in terms of "New Varget" and "Old Varget."

Which is a better primer? CCI BR2 or Fed210M?

Also, are CCI #200 and Fed210, good enough?

Lastly, anyone know what primers do Lapua Ammunition(.308 WIN 155 Scenar) and BHA(.308 WIN 168SMK) use?

Why bother debating between BR2 and 210M? I'd be really surprised if you got hold of some 210M.

With that said.. I use BR2.. you really can't go wrong. They're supposed to have a harder cup and also be a little wider for a tight(er) fit.

I have some of the 210M from a while back.
What's the difference between them and BR primers?

Cuz... in my research, may reloaders seems to be very happy with 210M....

But i guess, if they couldn't be found... then.... BR2 it is... in small amount... cost really isn't that big of a difference between BR2 and... #200 and regular Fed210

Many fellow Palma shooters talk in terms of old / new Varget, and charge weights have gone up a few grains since Varget first became popular; I've heard of using as much as 48 grains ! Hodgdon's website, a great resource, has a maximum of 47.0 with a Sierra 155. I was surprised to find the two lots averaged so closely. In warm weather the '02 lot gave 3,005 fps; I'll check the '06 lot when it gets warm and may up the charge a half grain. I buy 4 jugs of the same lot, when it's time for new powder, it's also time for a new barrel.

I recently ran a series of Varget loads with moly coated 155 SMK's through my gun.
46.0, 46.5 and 47.0
On the 47.0 series most showed more primer flattening than I was comfortable with.
There were some slight ejector swipes as well.
I dropped back to 46.5gr as my load to use.

This is with new Varget.

My fired primers are flatter than new, but the edges are still rounded and I couldn't measure any increased case web expansion from 46.0 to 46.5 to 47.0 grains. 46.5 grains would probably work fine for me too, but I'm more confident with the bullet starting out closer to 3,000 fps.
What kind of velocity are you getting with 46.5 grains and mollied 155's ?
Regards,
Mike

From what I was told by the guy at the reloading store in angeles is you won't see much diff between the benchrest primers but you will get a more consistent burn with BR primers vs ordinary primers. Take that for what its worth.
