IMR 4064 or VV N140 are the most accurate powders I have used for the 308. It is hard to beet
the Sierra 168 Match King. I have tried Speer, Nosler and Hornady match bullets are less accurate then
168 SMK. Type of brass is a big factor for accuracy. Consistent neck tension is the key to accuracy. I have
a huge lot of LC 71 Match brass that is giving excellent results. 5 shot .6 inch groups at 200 yards! :D

Very good info! Are you using a bolt gun or a scary fully semi auto? I’ve used the SMK’s in my Aero AR with decent results, not as good as your but I’m using mixed brass and different powder.

Savage 308 Bolt gun. Nothing special stone stock. I will have to take some picks of my 200 yard targets.
Here are some 5 shots @ 100 yards. These are IMR 4064 and 168 SMK

I certainly wouldn't complain about those!
It is hard to beat the Sierra 168 Match King.
That's what I always thought, and I still have ~2K of them, but never stretched them out past 500 (and don't plan to either). Then I learned that these are the ones that often tumble when passing below transonic velocities. Sniper Central : History of the M118 Ammunition
