Gonna be for a gas action NATO so it's got to be somewhat aggressive. How much charge and what primers do you suggest? I'm sure it will have to be tweaked a bit....they always do.

I started using Federal Match primers a few years ago. I don't know if they are better than the CCI's I used before that but I have Peace of mind. 

I load .308's with 150 grain Sierra Pro Hunters and Varget. I don't remember the exact powder charge, but they are very accurate in my Remington Mountain Rifle. I can get you the powder charge if you want.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

Sure do! Is it a little on the warm side? I'm loading for my AR-10 in 7.62x51 and it sometimes fails to cycle with mild hunting loads. Still going to be mostly a paper puncher but gonna pull double duty on varmints with it now that they are legal in PA for such things....groundhogs beware!...and maybe even yote's

My go to load has been 41 grains of IMR4895, a CCI BR primer, underneath either a 169 gr Sierra MatchKing for paper or a 170 gr, Hornady FP for hunting.  My brother put me onto this one when he was shooting his M1A.  Great accuracy.  Good luck.
