Default M118 and W748

i know there are better powders for accuracy loads and bullets for the 308 i got umpteen manuals with em and have a few nice loads but i also have a couple hundred m118 175grain btfmj and a lot of w748 powder but no load data for that combo.

i just need some data that i can use to make some cheap plinking ammo for the wife's 308. not looking to ring any gongs at 2000 yards just some data that makes it go boom with that powder and that bullet safely

175 gr BTHP 44.2 gr WW-748 2,580 fps 2.800" CCI LR guest
This is my long distance round. With the proper attention to detail, this load is capable of 1 moa @ 500 meters.
