    Hunting ammo for SCAR 17?......

    I was at the range today and was shooting my Scar and a few other rifles including one of my Scout 308's. Out of curiosity I thought to try the hunting loads I use in my Scout in the SCAR.

    Basically the load is the Varget load printed on the can for 165gr-168gr bullets using 165gr Partitions stuffed into Lapau brass. They were long enough that they barely fit into the SCAR mags.

    At 100yds the first 3 shots went into 3/4". That would be good peformance from your average deer rifle with a 2.5-10 scope much less for a Battle rifle and an unmagnified Aimpoint. A 165gr Partition will do just about hunting I need to do with a 308.

    I don't think I've found anything that didn't shoot at least pretty good in the SCAR 17.

    I love this rifle!........................................DJ

    Nosler partitions have deadly reputations. I've read they will make it through elk shoulder into vitals with tennis ball sized wound cavity with a .270 150gr.
