Re: .243 with 9-1/4 twist barrel

I have a Savage 11BTH 243 with a 1 in 9.25 twist factory thumbhole stock for sale on gunbroker. It shoots very well with 100gr Sierra gameking bullets at 2900fps with IMR4831 powder. I haven't tried the lighter bullets but I have decided to sell it to put a 24" 6mm barrel on my old custom 243 to get a little more velocity. I like the accuracy, but it doesn't match my Leupold VH reticle as well as I'd like at 2900fps with the heavy bullets I want to use.
