The .308 was designed for 4895 Type Powder. Varget is the top choice of .308 Long Range Shooters. For Hunting start with any 150 Grain Bullet. Personally I like the Sierra 150 Grain Spitzer Boattail, Varget, and Federal 210 Match Primers for Fighting the "G" - Hog. For Long Range I use the 168 Hornady A-Max.
