Getting some H4350 for 6.5CM as that seems pretty popular.

Need some recommendations for a 308 powder. Barrel is 1/10 5R 18" on a Remington action with suppressor, will be stretching it out as far as I can on a 1200yard range in the coming months.

I want to suggest Varget, but that stuff is scarce as hell right now. My bolt 308 likes Reloader 10x and AA2230 as well. You wont hear those tossed around much for 308 just because they're not the usual powders for it, but they work just as well and because they're not as common you might actually be able to find them. smile

178 gr A-max even with the lands, 43.5- 45.0 gr of H-Varget. Most likely it will shoot best between 44.0 and 45.0 gr.

Varget, Reloader 15, or one of the 4064 variants. 4895 can be useful, too.

I have had very good results with XBR8208 and AR Comp but good ole IMR 4064 is hard to beat.

BLC2 and the 308 have been making beautiful music together for decades.

Varget. Shines in every 308 I ever tried it in and is very versatile with different bullet weights.

In second place, IMR 4064, H4895, RL 15, or BLC2.

Varget or RE-15 are the 308s friends.
