    I've had a couple pounds sitting in the drawer for about a year, ignoring them for pet loads in 202, RL15, & 8208.

    Loaded ten rounds up last weekend for today's shoot.

    I have a new pet load :)

    Not where I thought I was going to end up but TAC and 168gr SMK is where I ended my search.
    What charge did you use?

    42gr (Usual: Only use published load data!).

    Have had it for over a year, finally decided to crack the seal and try it. Spent most of my time with RL15, 202, XBR, & 4064.

    Loaded another 20 to see what I can do at 400 & 750 ;)

    And PM me, I need to buy some 10mm bullets!

    Now I just need to find a powder thrower that works with TAC!

    I am running 2k rounds of 5.56 through my Dillion 650 right now. I check the power throw every 100 rounds, it has not varied. Running 26.2 grs of TAC. My 8# will be gone. :s0106:(But I will ready for the Zombies)

    For my 308, I settled on 2000 MR. I have a Rem 700 HB with a 22 " barrel shooting 175 gr SMK, and silencer. The 2000 MR gives me 2602 fps with a SD of 12. :D

    That's about what I'm doing with IMR3031 with a .308 168gr. I don't see much reason to change it with what you got there. I've got a few lbs of TAC in the cabinet, I havn't had a chance to crack into it and try it with some 155 and 135gr. Also wanted to try it with some barnes in .223.

    What charge of 3031 (I have a few pounds, but have only tried one load)?

    That result was off a bipod - Need to invest in a rest!
