I have had Bergers that shoot good with a 30 thou. jump to the lands and some have to be seated just touching the lands.
The really wanted to use the boat tailed Berger bullets because I believe they work better at the longer ranges and better against wind.
The lightest boat tailed they do at 90 grainers so I was hoping I would be able to use them.
If not I may have to go for 68, or 88 varmint bullets.
Please feel free to make suggestions of tried and tested loads in .243 rifles with a 1 in 10 twist.
