I would use whichever primer you have more of, but if you are going to the lengths I think you are to load those, I'd prolly opt for the BR2.
I've got some compiled info I can send you on match ammo duplication...
They have 168 and 175 versions, and a few iterations of each.
ETA: it was 42.5. I had to check my load data book. Fwiw this is in the 308 Service Rifle range of charges, which I like to use.
Me too. I'm still working with the 168's right now... I have a box of Hornady 168's to try against the current accuracy winner in my Savage Model 10, the SMK. Once I get through that, I'll start in on 175's. I only use IMR4064 in the Savage... my thought is, if I can't work up a decent load with that, there's something wrong with the rifle., although I will likely try TAC, just for fun, with the 168's.
Starline is supposed to be about the same case volume as LC so that is another iteration. I would suspect it to run the same velosity about half to a grain less.
The 178 eldx is a good bullet no doubt. I have no love lately for hornaday due to their politics. My match bullets are a 224 80 grn eldm and a 6mm 108 amax. I'll find an alternatives.
