Went to the range today to try out my first batch of reloads in my SPS Tactical .308. I was pretty happy with the results, considering this is my first try at reloading.

Hornady A-Max 168gr
Winchester brass
Federal Gold Medal Match primers
44 gr Reloder 15 (tried a couple 42gr load first - they grouped about 1.5")
15 mph winds 212deg from line of fire
100yds


5 shot group a hair over .75 inches


Don't know why it's upside down, but heres a 3 shot group that CTC measured close to .35"

When and if you can a chance try some 175 I wonder what you can do. Also can you check FPS ? With a chrono ? If you have one.

Finally had a chance to chrono my load today. Was about 27 deg at 6000ft elevation so a bit diff here in Nevada from where I live in sc with 90 deg and 200 ft elev. Didn't write them all down but my average was close to 2500 fps with top being 2532 fps and low 2485 fps. A little disappointed but an accurate load nonetheless. Not sure how much the temp affected the velocities...
