    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.
