I have a friend who reloads. After deer season this year we will work up a load for it.
My Remington 788 in 308 loves federal gold metal match.

3/4"" is best I could get out of them. I can squeeze that load down to 1/2" if I do them myself tho, but Ive found other loads that my rifle likes better. And it just plain prefers Nosler bullets over those Sierras anyway. Bottom line is find what it likes.
