Check out the Ammunition and Reloading section. Everything you would ever want to know and then some is in that section.

Sierra 168 grain MatchKing over 41.5 grains of Reloader 15. I use Winchester brass and primers.

This load is magical.

Definitely go with reloader 15 powder and I also use 168 grain hornady match bullets and get excellent results.

Your a good sport about it!!!

I am curious why so many use 150gr? I do use some, such as Barnes TTSX. For most shooting or hunting 165..168gr just shoot more accurately at distance. At 100 yards both are outstanding, but after 200 yards the edge goes to the heavier bullets. RL15 is fairly slow for .308, 3031 is pretty fast. IMR 4064 is a great powder for .308. It produces fast velocity w/ very consistant groups. Most loads are compacted loads, but so are RL15 w/ no real advantage of MV.

Some may use lighter bullets like 150 grain because there rifles have a slower twist rate. The rifles that have a faster barrel twist can stabilize and hand heavier bullets
