115gr D-Tac in 8 twist

Looking for load info, mostly powder types, for those pushing the 115dtac in an 8 twist.
Please list powder, barrel length, and velocities if you have them. And also your research if you just could not get then stabilized also and what you were using, thanks.
Also, 243 win. Is the specific caliber I'm looking for, those shooting the AI or other 6mm variants at similar speeds will also be helpful. I am thinking of working up loads for these in an 8twist 24" shilen. And all the info to get started on the right food would be helpful. Thanks!

Re: 115gr D-Tac in 8 twist

It may be of little value, but I shoot 117gr Vlds from a 30" 8t Shilen, 243AI 47.5gns H1000
I haven't chronied so? but accuracy is superb, 8t is absolutely adequate and I'm at sea level
