    Default Load for M14/M1A with Varget, 175SMK and M118 Brass

    Were trying to locate a good load, with minimal vertical stringing at 600 meters that wont beat the rifles to death.

    The rifles being used are the M14SSR type
    Brass is M118 (7.62x51 / .308)
    Powder is Varget
    Primers are WLR
    Bullets are SMK 175

    Wed like a chamber pressure of 50,000 psi
    And a port pressure of 12,500 psi (plus or minus 1500 psi)

    The bullet must stay supersonic to 800 meters

    Thanking everyone in advance.

    Here's some threads to look over, at a Forum for M14's:

    I personally prefer WC846 or H4895/MILSURP 4895 for the 308.
