Iíd like to load my wife some range ammo, I have hundreds of cases prepped, I have primers and bullets, Iíve only got 2 lbs of Hodgdon benchmark, 2lbs of Varget, 2 lbs of H4895. Iím sharing this powder with other calibers so Iím trying to find a good load for her, Iíve got 250 168 Hornady HPBT match bullets that Iíve had for probably 12 years and never used. So, letís hear some recipes, I also have 1lb of BLC2 and CFE223 I wouldnít mind shooting up as I wonít use them for anything else

That blc-2 start with the load data on the bottle ,which is max,start working your way down. IF it doesn't shoot to your liking at max.
You can also start at min ,which is 44 grain I believe,but don't take my word ,cause that's just off the top of my head.

Depends on weight of bullet,but a 150 grain bullet is 45 grain min.
Always look a published load ,link above, always start low work your way up, the only time I've had pressure issue is with military brass ,you want to be a few grains below max.

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Lots to choose from.....Here is where I would start.  Heck, you may even find a load she can hunt with. 

H335 and titegroup are in stock right now on midsouthshooterssupply. 

Varget and H4831 were my go to for 308....but I'm sure others will work just fine.

I use VARGET with the 150 grain Hornady SST in the .308- awesome combo -very accurate and very deadly on game,
If you're gonna be dumb,you gotta be tough.
