Re: Long Range .243 bullet

I'm gonna throw in an odd recipe for your 9 twist AI, 108grn BIB flat base vld, same J4 jacket as the bergers, .52 bc, specifically designed for a 9 twist, depending on barrel length it can be pushed well over 3200fps with H4831sc, due to the flat base its not the best past 700 yards, but inside of that its one of the most accurate.

I would look no further than the 105AM, 105 Horn HPBT, or 105 Berger VLD. The 105 Horn HPBT, with its .530 BC, would probably be the start and ending point of my search, if you can get it to shoot as well as the AM or VLD.

Can't remember the guys name, just type BIB bullets in to google and his site will show up. His bullets use to be pretty reasonable as well, like 130 for 500.

Re: Long Range .243 bullet

Amaxes are incredible hunting bullets...

did you see the performance of the 105 amax on the link I posted on page one ?

Here is a 6mm line up for you to see...

Re: Long Range .243 bullet

Will the A Max 105 stabalize in a 1x9?

Re: Long Range .243 bullet

The Davidson brothers of Long Range Pursuit have switched to the Hornady Amax's . Aaron was compiling info from this past season. Should be interesting to see how they compared to the Bergers in previous seasons.
