    Default 8x68S loads w/ 200 grain bullet

    Anyone have experience with loading an 8x68S? I'm using a 200 grain Nosler Partition. For larger game, i.e. Moose or the like, I may go to a 220grain Partition, but mostly, it's an Elk rifle and I feel the 200 to be enough wampum. Very good experiences w/ a 210 for the .340, so I think 200 will be fine in the 8x68S. I prefer the IMR powders, 4831, 450, or 7828
    and have them on hand. Getting powder is getting difficult. (and expensive)
    oh - the action is the Mark V with a Sauer barrel

    I'd really like to be able to help you with that, but I'm a complete beginner that has just taken on this hobby during those past few months of quarantine. I've always been interested in the sport, but I guess I was just too afraid to try, don't really know why to be honest. I started by telling a friend about my idea, a friend that has both a rifle and a Dillon 650 precision reloading kit. It was one of the most impressive things I've ever put my hand on, or seen in real life, to be more exact. I'm now looking to purchase one for myself, but I'm really lacking the experience to be able to make a good choice by myself, so articles and reviews, like this one for reference are really welcome.
