I shoot a Savage 10 FCP .308 with a 22" barrel. I too liked the Federal Gold Match load and wanted to duplicate it. I first found that the velocity of this round was average at 2,600 fps. I would even go out on a limb and venture to say the 168 Sierra would like this load also.

Here is what I have chrono'd and found to be even more accurate to boot.

Winchester brass trimmed to 2.010
Winchester LR primer
168 gr Hornady Amax
41.4 gr H4895
2.810 OAL (.010 off lands)
