Re: New light Gun

Welp i was hoping for the 8 but from what you guys are sayin then im sure its 10 since its standard for Ruger..

Darryl,

I would like to take you up on that offer to use your light gun if you dont mind.. However I will bring my 243 just incase your not there just to see what it will do with the light bullets.. Heck a guy was using a 17 with 39 grainers lol.. Never hurts to try but I no they probably wont perform worth squat but least ill have fun [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

New light Gun

Ok all I just got a new light gun to use but could use some help with loads.. Since I told my dad I was lookin for a light gun to use in comp he broke down and gave me one of his favs.. Its a Ruger M77 Mark II in 243 with a 8.5-25 Leupold LR Scope.. Now I havent loaded anything in 243 for a lonnnng time.. Anyone got some good starting loads and bullets to use.. In case you are wandering yes this means I will be there on the 17 [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] for the light gun shoot.. Although I need to weigh this gun to make sure its 16.5 or under it fells light enough but only the scale will tell.. Im guessing it to be around 14-15 lbs.. One again thanks for any info you may provide..

Re: New light Gun

Ok well I did some research here and the gun I have is there traget gun.. Standard has 26" bbl with 9 twist.. I was way off on my weight "guess-timation" its only 9 1/2 lbs without the scope. Here is the link to the exact gun it is..

Now my question is how well do you think the 107's would hold up?

Re: New light Gun

Try the Berger 95 grain VLDs, have seen them shot very well in factory 243s. sub 10" groups at 1k.
