    Hornady help

    Need some book info as I can't find any at the moment.

    308 winchester
    Varget powder
    Horn 178gr ELD-X bullet

    what is the starting and ending charge

    I need this info for this specific bullet. My Hornady book doesn't have it, hoping someone has a more recent book that does.

    thanks.

    9th edition doesn't show that specific bullet but does have BTHP match and A-Max of same weight. Varget range is 32.0-43.2 grains. Says 2000-2500 fps
