But I digress. This past weekend, I shot in a match with a friend of mine who is perpetually experimenting with bullets, loads, and everything else in search of a few more points. He read that IMR 4064 was the best powder for the .308, and so he whomped up a bunch of ammo with it, tried it at 100 yards, and sure enough, it shot terrific. But at 300, and 500, and 600, it sprayed like a garden hose.
I’ve been handloading since 1965, and there are a number of things I’ve learned since then.
