    Does anyone have a pet load for their .308 with 165 grain bullets.

    Sarge01,
    I use 165 grain nosler ballistic tips, 42.5 grains of H4895, and I get consistent 1" groups. Starting load should be 41.0 grains . Max load is 43.5 grains.

      Some loads i have used; IMR4064 44.0 165 rem pspcl and W748 46.4 165 rem pspcl. Reduce a few grains to start.
      If i remember they both chronographed about 2680.

          I second the varget recommendation. I keep mine a bit below max to help with case life.

              Even if the Democrats take the White House and the Senate, it will still take 60 Senate votes to kill the filibuster, because of the filibuster!
