    I have a new Remington 700 308 and would like some input for a good starting load. It has 1-10 twist 24' standard barrel. I have 155 gr Sierra and 150 gr Hornady bullets on hand. I also have Varget H380 and IMR 4064 powders on hand.I load several calibers but am still new to 308.
    Thanks

    47 grains of Varget is a great load with a Nosler 150. Start at 45 and work up to be safe with the Hornady.

    Any of your three powders would be appropriate with those bullet weights. Varget is probably closest to ideal. Hodgdon has a great web sight that will give you starting loads.
