Damn! That's a nice rifle. And you stole it too! I'll bet that baby LOVES 168gr. Berger VLD bullets over 45.5 gr. of Varget using Fed.210 primers...

Congratulations Dune. Next time you're cruising down I-80, let me know, I'm in Sac, I'll buy the coffee.

Is that what you're feeding your DPMS LR-308?

Just looked at their page http://www.bergerbullets.com/ and it looks like the 210 VLD would be better with the 1:10 twist of the rifling in the 10 LCF

It could be tough. I have to teach a class and then jam over to the Tea Party. Parking is going to be a PITA. Then I have a doctors appointment at 3PM and a meeting at 7:30. It's a fairly full day.

If I can get my co-worker to take the class, then it's a go. You've got my number.

That is a beautiful rifle. I think the bolt handle might actually be larger than the shift knob on my last car.

Yes, with that formula my LR308 made a .40" 3 shot group. I got that formula from an extensive article on the most accurate loads for the .308. You probably would get better accuracy from the 210gr. VLD Berger. I've never tried anything that heavy in my LR308, although it too has a 1:10 twist. They are expensive ($37/100) but they have the highest BC of any bullet made. They are also recommended for hunting!

I'm not reloading yet, I have decided I can't continue to rely on my friends to reload for me...just doesn't sit right with me even though I buy the dies, primers, bullets and powder, they do the work.

Reloading my own brass will be step 4, after optics for the Savage.

Looking at a Lee Delux Kit, then there are all the other goodies to buy!!

They have the same rifle at the Cabela's in my town. It is a nice looking rifle but I couldn't believe how heavy it is. I thought it was pushing 15 lbs and that is with out a scope. I really hope you don't have to carry it long distances. If you do I would invest in a radio flyer or something. The gun does have a very nice action and stock and I almost gave in to temptation and bought it but I found self control and am still saving up for my Ed Brown Kobra Carry handgun.
