According to these tech specs., your gun does have a 1 in 12" twist rate. That said, I would still go with the 168 Gr. Matchking in either the Federal Gold Medal, or handloads. If the results aren't satisfactory, then drop down to the 155 Gr. Matchking.

If you reload you can now get Sierra Match King tipped bullets that are more aerodynamic than the old MK bullets. https://www.sierrabullets.com/products/bullets/rifle.cfm/brandID/8

Bilt,  Thanks for all the info.      It'll be on the back shelf for a month while I cycle through all the other things I want to do at my new range.  Probably will hold another .308 day around labor day.  In the meantime, I'll collect some 20rnd samples of various ammo to try.

I've seen those, but have yet to try them. They are basically Sierra's version of the Nosler Ballistic Tip, which is a very accurate bullet. As or more accurate than the Sierra Matchking. I have several rifles that shoot the Nosler Ballistic Tips just as tight as the Sierra's. The Polymer tip is much more uniform, and can be shot out of box magazines without any deformation of the tip from recoil.
