.243 AI Best powder, best load

Im about two months away from getting my new .243 AI. The action is at the Smith's and once the McMillian gets here I will send it off to him so he can pillar bed it and send it back.
This is all new to me and I have never had a custom rifle built..........The barrel will be a Pac Nor Super Match 24" #4 1x9..........My intentions are to use it 90% of the time for Marmonts and Coyotes and 10% or less for Deer and Antelope.......of course that depends on drawing a tag which only happens about every four to five years.....

For those of you out there that have had one or have one now.......

I would love to hear from you about your favorite bullets and powder and any and all of your input on this round ...................for someone that is just starting out.

try Nosler 70 gr ballistic tip and IMR 4064
very accurate load for me.
Buy you a Nosler #6 load book.
It has all the most accurate loads for all powders.
