Re: .243 Load advice with Berger Bullets Please ???

87 berger vld, sako 75 1:10 37.9 grains of h4064 fgm210 primer, sako brass
2.760 coal. 2970fps. It put about 3 out of 5 in
one hole at 300 yards in a lot of my five shot groups. I have the flyer problem solved
I think (In the cold last winter my front stock screw was loosening outside and snugging
back up when warmed up. It's a carbon fiber stock in carbon fiber bedding, it finally stayed
loose) and will be shooting at 800 this week or weekend. My groups were still always
under an inch with the flyers.

    Yes and not a dumb question but I think the Bergers say 1:9 twist or faster.

    My savage 12 LRP has a 1/9.25 twist and it will stabalize the 105 berger which calls for a 1/8 twist. So maybe you could stabalize the 95's, you just gotta try them. I shoot h4831sc but my bullet is heavier. If i was you I would first try h4350, lapua brass, 95 bergers and cci br2 primers. I love the bergers, had a 5 shot group measure 1.22" at 400 yards a couple nights ago. 3 of the bullets were touching... they fly true! good luck

    Nick, which one of the Berger 105gr bullets are you using in your Savage LRP .243? I have the same rifle. Is it the 105 gr Match BT Target, 105 gr Match VLD Target, or 105 gr Match Hybrid Target?
