Aris Posted May 26, 2022 Report Share Posted May 26, 2022 Been using Sierra 175 Match King - and they've been OK to 600. I've also shot 155gr 2155's with similar results to 300. I will very occasionally shoot 1000 with my club. Problem is - i'm running out - and there are no stocks in the UK - and would like to have a plan B bullet (perhaps even plan C). I kind of like the idea of using a European one - like a Lapua which might have better availability in the future (perhaps i'm being naive). Does anyone have any practical experience in what will work? I'm using V140 - but am open to changing to a different powder if it gives the desired results. Anyone using the Scenars like the 185? The berger bullet stabilisation app says 1.50 - "stable" assuming I can get it to 2650 (seems unlikely for such a heavy bullet) but right on the cusp. At the end - only real world experience matters though - so if anyone could recommend something other than a 175 or 155 SMK which works in an AI 308 barrel - much appreciated!
