Does anyone here know any starting points for this rifle? I am loading 150 grs and 168 bthp using either Re15, H4895, or Varget. Any suggestions helpful. My barrel length remains the stock 26".

BMiracle,
I hunt with a M700VSSF (varmint synthethic stainless fluted) in .308. I have had great success with 44.9gr of IMR4064 pushing a 165gr Sierra Game King Spitzer boattail. I consistently shoot <1/2MOA and on several occasions put 5 into one ragged hole. I have tried the 165gr Nozler Ballistic Tips, but my gun seems to like the Sierras better. I use Win brass, Win primers, and OAL of 2.810"
