I'm looking for a load that will work for whitetails and wild boars. I'm thinking at least 150gr. Maybe 165gr. Let me know what you think and what you've had luck with. thx

First of all i am no expert but i have worked for years with the 308 Winchester.
The 150 grain bullet is a good choice for deer. You have to try a few different brands to see which one your gun likes.
I do like the 165 grain bullets also but the same thing applies to finding the one your gun likes? To hunt Bore i think i would go for the 165 grain in a regular type bullet.
Premium bullets are to costly to try to find a good load from scratch,IMHO.
Powder i have had the best results with IMR-4064 and my second choice would be Varget.
Primer brand choice comes in to this also as does brand of brass.
What works for me and the guns i load for may very well not be near what yours may like?
