.243 VLD Question?

I just picked up a brand new rem 700 vls in .243 that Im going to use for long range coyotes. I was wanting to shoot the bergers vld's in it. The barrel is a 9.25 twist so what is the heaviest bullet it will stabilize. I checked out the berger site and it should for sure do fine with the 95's but what about heavier? Anyone have any experience with them and also what powder do you guys have the best luck with?

Thanks

+1 for the amax. got the 105 amax to shoot in a remington 243 with your same twist but never the 105 berger

Re: .243 VLD Question?

I changed my mind, I think Im going to try the 95gr ballistic tips with some H1000. Anyone tried this combo or similar to it? I know H1000 is really slow but I have a 26" barrel.....??? Any input appreciated

Thanks
