Anyone have luck with handloading 168 or 175 HPBT's for use in an L1A1 with new chrome lined barrel? If so, any favorite load recipes you'd share? Thanks.

I like the 155 grainers much better, around 42 grains of 4895 in a military LC case. The 155 has the same BC as the 168 and can be pushed faster.

Mine did not like the 175's, got a five inch group at 100 off a rest, using a 1x6 scope at 6x. I shot some Aguila .308 150's that did better.
