Welcome to the forum!
You can check the reloading section and there I have a reloading thread with recipes from a few guys that posted some and can maybe get you started some what.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Ok so this maybe a little late altho I just joined a week ago sometime. I have a 5R in a .308 also...I have a load built for hunting and I have done some target shooting with it but I'm using a 165gr Sierra BTHP Gameking with 44.8gr of RE-15 and CCI bench rest primers. The load works really well shot a hog this past chrismas at 475 yards and shot one of my best groups with the load at 100 yards. If I can figure out how to get the picture off my old phone I'll post the group.
