Lithgow La102 .308 reloading

Post by Macbeth » 08 Feb 2019, 1:38 pm

Hi

I'm new to the reloading game and I'm looking for some tips or info on how to get some better accuracy and consistency out of my lithgow La102 .308.
The La102 has 4 groves and a 1:11" (279mm) right hand twist and a 560mm barrel.
I i have tried a couple different loads all using AR2208 and multiple gr projectiles and not fining much consistency.
I'm not sure if the powder is a good one or what gr projectiles i should be looking at using for target shooting.

From 150g and up 08 is hard to beat in a 308 what group size are you getting and with what .
And was this rifle part of the recall ...... did it get a new barrel .

I agree, and you need to get as much sped as you can. They seem to shoot the best near maximum pressure. What projectiles are you using?
