Your shooting a .308??

 

I used 47gr. of Varget for 155gr. Scenar's in my 308.

Federal 210M primers or CCI BR-2. 

Sub MOA.

LB, I load mine at 2.950.

 

Actually, I loaded some up to 47.5gr. with no ill effects. Accuracy was no better with that load than the 47gr.

 

Your rifle has the same twist (12) as my VS, so it should like the 155gr. Scenars, or so I would think.
