After a long, lengthy load workup for my Remington 700 SS 5-R Milspec (.308) I think I've found a sweet load. Last Monday I went to the Range and found as close to perfect conditions that may exist for a day of shooting at 300 yards. Temperature was about 50 degrees, Humidity 60%, and Wind ZERO! After checking the rifle's zero and "fouling" the barrel at 100 yards I cranked the scope up for 300 yards and started shooting. This "Blind Squirrel" found an acorn at last. Group measures just under 3/4" and it sure looked pretty when I went down range to look at it. The load is: 44 gr Varget CCI-BR-2 175 gr. Nosler Custom Competition Lapua case 2.800 OAL The rifle is a factory stock rifle although I replaced the X-Mark Pro trigger with a Timney. Chamber is "stock" and a little long but seems to give great accuracy even though the "jump" is over 1/8" (rather than the favored .020" many suggest for this caliber). All in all it was a Great day at the range and I think I'll keep this load.
