    I've finally decided to handload for my .308 cal T-3. But, being new to handloading, I don't want to throw hundred of dollars and months of research re-inventing the wheel. I would like to partner with anyone alrady handloading for T-3.

    Since the T-3 twist ratio is 1 in 11, I figure 180gr is the highest bullet weight I should try for the longest of the long range shooting. I want to also look into 165-168gr bullets range as well. Can anyone share what has worked best for you?

    I can later pass on my findings. We'd need to agree on methodology to ensure repeatable/consistent results.
