I think the next powder I try will be 748. From what I have read and heard I think it might be a good one.

748 and 335 are pretty much the same powder.

That and Bl C#2 will take care od all your 7.62 and 5.56 needs.

I buy a case of 4 eight pound jugs of h335, and it loads all of my 7.62 and 5.56.

That is a very open ended question with almost no background info. Are you truly talking .308 or do you mean 7.62 X 51? Are you loading for max velocity, match accuracy, bolt gun or semi-auto? Progressive press or single stage?

For general purpose loads in my semi-auto battle rifles, Win-748 or BLC-2.

Reloads for accuracy in a bolt gun

According to Hodgdons reloading page, you can even use Clays, Titegroup, and Trailboss for reduced loads for practice. .308 is a versatile round.

My Favorite is IMR4064, BLC(2) works great also. 4064 is less temperature sensitive.
