MR2000 , 185 Jugs in .308

#1
Itching to try the 185 Jugs in the .308 for the first time. I never used MR2000 before and does anyone have any good results with that powder in the .308? Any loads you like to share, of course I'll work up. I know Varget is my go to powder, just thought that MR2000 will work nice with the heavies.

Frank was just talking about this combo in the caliber episode of the everyday sniper podcast. Think he said 46 grains got him 2700 out of a 20” barrel with a can of if I’m not mistaken.

I've been shooting the 185 Hybrid with 47.2 grains 2000MR (Lapua brass) thru my 26" Bartlein 5R ten twist for about two years now. Last time I chrono'd I was 2820 FPS and needed 8.7 mils to get to 1,000 yards from 100 yard zero.

Did you see any signs of pressure? I have a GA Precision Crusader with a Bartlien 26 inch as well, but I have the 11:25 twist.
