    I can find very little info on this combo. Does anyone have a manual that has a load? Basically need min and max load.

    Hodgdon shows 38.0 - 41.5 for the 175 SMK.

    In my 308s the 175 SMK and the 178 AMax fly at the same velocity and hit in the exact same spot with the same loads at 1000yds.

    Benchmark works very well for me with the 155gr Palma bullet. Never tried it with the heavier bullets as my 4064 load is solid.
