    I did a ladder test with the 178's and 208's in my Brux barrelled .308. The 178's I started at 42.0 of Varget and stopped at 44.0 with VERY slight pressure signs. The 208's started at 39.0 Varget and stopped at 41.0 with absolutely no pressure signs. I seated each at -.010, but I don't have the OAL handy right now.

    Does anyone have any starting and max loads for the Hornady A-Max 308's in 178gr? I have IMR 3031 / H4895 / Varget / BL-C(2). Thanks, Sniperone

    I've shot the 178's before, and 44.0 grains was definitely a stopping point with Varget.

    I settled at 43.7 of Varget.
