M1A Reloading question

I currently have some 308 loaded with Sierra 168 MK HPBT on top of 42 grains of Varget and this shoots extremely well in a Savage 12BVSS and was wandering what you guys think of this load in a new M1A loaded. Have been in the hospital and have not had a chance to shoot my new toy. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Your load should work well. I used a Hornady 168g HPBT bullet with 40.5g of IMR 4895 at 2.800" O.A.L. for a target load and it had a little less recoil than your load. If I were you and the load works well, I would keep things simple and use the same load for both rifles.

Keep 'em in the ten ring and good luck !
