Yes, but I'd use 43 grains of IMR4064 and a Wolf primer.

Winchester cases will shoot just as accurate as the Lapua's will.

Be sure your barrel's groove diameter is a few 10 thousandths smaller than that Berger bullet, otherwise, accuracy won't be excellent to marvelous. And a 1:12 twist rifling is also about the best for such bullets shot from .308 Win. cases.
