I shoot the 308 155's and 168's, they are a fine alternative to the SMK line of bullets, seem to be about on par with the 168 SMK's I shoot. POI changes a little between sierras and Noslers though, so you gotta remember which is which.
For general shooting I'll buy a bulk lot of Nosler CC 168s. I do notice that the nose "hollow point" seems to be less consistent than sierras, I will reject a few bullets out of every batch for this.
It's not the very best bullet you can buy, but its a very accurate one and affordable enough to let you shoot more often and get better.

I can shoot both 168 or 155 with this rifle really well although it was throated for 175.
Like the others, I have had very good success with the 77's and 80's in my .223's. They have been consistent and out performed the Sierra's in my rifles.
I have multiple boxes on hand and have no need to play with any thing else for X-Course shooting.
Buy a box or 2 and give them a go.
Lois. I have about 400+ of the 77s and never got to shoot them before I got a pile of 75 amax s. Let me know I you're interested in them via pm. I don't have plans to shoot them at this point, I'm trying to parse down the number of bullets that I have on hand and just put a bunch of the same thing on the shelf for simplicity reasons.
glad to see this thread. I just bought some 175 Nosler's for my 308. I have not loaded them yet but I am getting ready to do some testing. I got them when Midway had a sale going on - $66.00 for 250 bullets; not a bad deal.
