    Hey dtbighit,

    Here is my 175 grain SMK load. Well, I really can't say it is mine, it is the Marine Corps sniper load, (M118LR)

    Case: Federal Military FC08
    Primer: Federal 210-GMM
    Bullet: Sierral 175 grain Match King
    Powder: 43.1 grains of RL-15
    COL: 2.810"
    Muzzle Velocity: 2655 Ft/sec

    It works great for me. My rifle is a Remington 700 VSF, 26" fluted heavy barrel, 1 in 12" twist, HS Precision stock. Leupold mts and rings and a Leupold Vari X III 4.5x14 AO tactical scope with mildot crosshair.

    Good luck and good shooting.

    Sincerely,
    Dave (Bubba) Thornblom
