well i had bought some 180 gr. gamekings to shoot from my .308 savage 10fp...i had read that the faster twist likes heavier bullets...and this gun has 1:10 twist..

I think it has more to do with bearing surface than weight ...just my opinion.

the 180's would do no better than 1.5" and usually 2-2.5"...verry poor
Yesterday i went out to shoot my bb's and i performed some testing on about 50 loads for the 308

to say the least it shoots well and with IMR4064 and 3031 and BL-c(2) powder i have 3 good loads to work off of...all under .870 moa...and that one was a 7 shot group...wind from the north at 15 and resting the gun on the back fender of my 1947 dodge truck draped with cover alls....

I really need to make a good shooting bench

excellent shooting. Most would have given up, but you just have to stay on the range and in the reloading room and work things out.

I feel like that frog in the storkes mouth with my hands around the storkes neck so he cant swallow me..never give up.... i shot 70 rounds with them 180 game kings and at different recipes for each 4 rounds and none better than 1.5"...nice looking bullet though,,,

do you want a fishing lure that catches fisherman or the one that catches fish...
my son said, i will take the one that catches fish so i handed him a chartruse roostertail....and he put away that big pretty plastic fish with impecable paint work.

and started catching fish
