Depends on the load, the barrel, and other factors. Honestly, I'm seldom concerned about finding max speed and more concerned about the most accurate load. That is, provided it is a reasonable speed. "Speed kills" is a true statement, but you gotta hit the vitals first. Most anything we are likely to shoot is not going to know the difference in 200-300 fps. Of course finding the speed of your most accurate load will aid in developing a dope chart if you desire.

Varget has always worked for me in 308s..
Start at the middle of the book data going up in .2 grains running a 2.80 COAL
I have been able to find a load that would cut one ragged hole in numerous rifles that way.

Here are a bunch of different loads guys are using out there. Quite a number use Varget.

My own load for a Howa 1500 22" barrel is:
43.5 gr Varget
2.8 COAL
Lapua brass
WLR primers
