    Core Lokt reloads with 42.5 grs of Varget under 150 gr .308 gets touching holes at 100 yds. The most accurate load of all the others I've made including 155's, 168 SMK, and 168 Speer match. They expand nicely. That's out of a Stevens 200 22" barrel, and a Choate Tactical stock with a ten round CDI mag. This load blew both lungs out of a 130 lb whitetail last year.

    Thank you this is just what I was looking for.

    Where did you find it?

    I went to Remington site, and found nothing. I found it very confusing, and slow, to respond.

    Thanks Deersniper, my 30-30 is the only gun I haven't loaded for. I may have to give it a shot though. Just to see how accurate I can get that 58 year old gun to shoot.

    Remington should know their own bullets even tho I never figured out how to use their deal.I know the one I posted is simple,pretty accurate when I checked drop on the range,and covers bullet type in general,not a specific brand.I've used it quite a while on several brands of bullets.I have enough experience with it to reccomend it.Use whatever you like.

    I looked at my software application on my iphone. It's called Ballistic FTE and has most every manufature out there that makes bullets and also has the majority of loaded ammo data for most common calibers and bullet weights. It's a pretty good program for the most part.

    Thanks to everyone for the information.
    I should have given more information as to what I'm trying to do here.
    I belong to a club (2 miles forme home) that has a 100 yard rifle range. I can't shoot my gun at 200 yards. So I need to know how high I need to shoot at 100 yards to be on at 200 yards. I used both .193 and .226 BC.
    The diference at 100 yards is .3". Either one works for me.
    Thanks again, Terry

    ps. I'm headed to the range:D

    OK guys I'm back from the range. I shot up a box and a half and had a great time.

    Last weak I did a trigger job on my Marlin 336. What a difference it made! Not only was it lighter, but it was so smooth with no creep. The gun never shot so good.

    I was going for 4.25" to 4.5" high at 100 yards to be "0" at 200 yards.
    This is my last target. And Ya, that's three shots!
    I call it good enough.:yup:

    Will miracles never cease!I just tried it,works for me.Can't believe I can get something to work and someone else can't. Just put [ handloads.com ballistic calculator ] on your search. I was checking Ammo and Ballistics,loaded ammo (they don't give BC,just trajectory and such) and I don't see how Remington can have such low BC and get downrange performance like it says in there.This book has nothing to do with any company and I have found it to be right on the money when I load to same velocity. (I know it's all Jimkin,s fault)
