Will 1-in-12 stabilize 175gr

Zack,

Just got my first REAL bolt gun with some potential together.
It's an FN SPR A1a, .308 Win, 20", 1-in-12 rifling.

How well will it stabilize Lake City M118LR 175gr BTHP?
I set it up with a Mark IV 3.5-10 with Mark IV rings.

Thus far my best, & longest shot grouping was 300m. Placed a 1.72" 3 shot group.
This was with Black Hills Match, 168gr HPBT

It should, yes. My 24" AWP is 1:12 and it shoots 175gr just fine all the way out. The heaviest bullet I've shot is the 210gr Berger and it stabilized at my altitude ((5000').

Outstanding, I do thank you for your time and input here.
I know I need to work up a load for this particular rifle. Hope to get that started this winter.
