Tell us more about the .308 Remington 700 rifle, scope, and 175 Sierra load. Damn good shooting. Any wind?I headed out to the CMP range with my REM 700 .308 and those rounds I loaded. Harris bipod and homemade sand bag
I was told by the range master to find group size you divide the “c-c” number by 25.4
So that comes to 5.95” 10 shot group at 600
A true minute of angle rifle and ammo combo

That is really fast for such a heavy bullet. Let us know how your seating depth affects it.Trying to hone in on a load but don’t want to pull bullets if pressure signs come about. I’m at a node that gives better ES but it’s on the upper end.
Got some interesting numbers last outing. I’m questioning whether or not they are accurate. Seems awfully high F.P.S wise for a 185 bullet from a .308 win.
Brass looks fine. Checked to see how tight the spent primers were and decapping them took no less effort than those on the low end.
Taking these samples out along with the Wilson seater and arbor press to see what I get.

Yep.Silhouette range at riverbend. You must have shot PRS Sunday.
Wow those calibers in PRS sound like barrel eaters. The erosion in a .308 is nowhere near that.
I was listening to the Everyday Sniper podcast, and he was talking about barrels and mentioned he used to get 10-12,000 rounds out of his .308 riflesWow those calibers in PRS sound like barrel eaters. The erosion in a .308 is nowhere near that.
I used to shoot Gold Medal Match in my Remington 700VS. It would always group 4 in one hole with a flier on 5 shot groups. The flier was sometimes close, but it was not in the same hole.I always found the Federal gold Medal Match in 308 to be more consistent than anything I could load. It is loaded the same as the Lake City LR stamped 308. Which is the military sniper round.
