I've been thinking about switching to the 155 scenar myself. However, I'll never totally get rid of my 150 hornady sp's though...

I bet they shoot well! I enjoy old threads. I try not to rejuvenate too many, but every once in a while I will. I like to see who is still posting. There are interesting comments sometimes too.

Going way back, I'll share my experience on target more than game. The scenar's shot very well. I bought 750 of them on the cheap because they were moly coated. I used vinegar to remove the moly coating, if I remember right. Back then, I messed around with about 4 different 308's and then later sold every damn one of them. Just never quite warmed up to the little short bastid. Growing up with the 30-06 does that to a guy, I guess. Back when I first replied to this thread, I had just bought my first 308 win. I kept it around for about a year. Used it and liked it, but another guy needed it more than I did. I sold it for $400.00 more than I paid for it. I then ended up with a FN BACO featherweight that was a damn good shooter after glass bedding and ernie the gunsmith trigger spring, then I ended up with a beautiful stainless Ruger all weather that I put into a walnut stock, and lastly a Winchester model 100. I think the last straw was when the model 100 charging handle broke into 2 pieces. I sold all of the 308 rifles I had and figured I'd never buy another. Then 3 years ago I got on an AR kick and decided to try an AR10. That rifle is actually fun as hell to shoot and damn accurate. Now last weekend I picked up a Tikka T3 with bushnell elite 3200 3-9x40 for $549.99. Couldn't pass up that deal. As for the 308 win, I'd not go into buying one thinking it is the equal to the grand ol 30-06, like some here think, because it just isn't. Pat has proven that it is a fine and dandy killer with those 155 scenar's, but like I said long ago, I'd not give up those 150gr Hornady SP interlocks. Try those scenar's, they will likely be accurate. In a 308win, they like to be ran around 2,800 fps, but I wouldn't guarantee ragged hole accuracy as the norm. It just didn't happen for me with all the 308's I had at the time. I actually got better accuracy with the 150gr hornadies.. Now hornady has the ELDX, so you know which way I'm leaning...

From Lapua’s website

Superior accuracy with the Lapua Scenar bullet
The Lapua Scenar bullets are the first choice for superior accuracy. The Scenar is an open tip match bullet with a boat tail design, perfect for competetive shooting in a multitude of events. This competition projectile has a superb track record at mid-range and long range rifle matches and bench rest shooting at an international level. The Scenar bullet comes in a vast selection of calibers.

The .30 cal GB491 10 g/155 gr Scenar bullet is no longer in active production, it has been replaced with the .30 GB522 10,0 g / 155 gr OTM Scenar-L bullet.

More info:

Lapua’s Scenar-L bullet is the result of decades of experience and state of the art manufacturing capabilities combined with extensive testing. The Scenar-L has the refined qualities of the original Scenar bullet with higher standards of jacket wall concentricity, weight variation and dimensional uniformity. Scenar-L has truly earned its reputation as the go-to bullet for the best possible results in long range rifle shooting. For top shooters in the world in benchrest, long range or F-class, Scenar-L is the ultimate match bullet, proven by the countless long range records set using it.

The “L” might be okay, I’ve never used them.
I guess, that’s a bullet I need to try.

No problem.

What would the Scenar do for you that a bullet designed for hunting wouldn't do?

At 2900 it’s close to .5 than .460 IIRC.

I stand corrected on the discontinued (tho not really the same as out of production) issue.

Good thing I just picked up 200 of 'em a couple of weeks ago from Powder Valley
