So im starting up loading on the 243 again and was considering the 85 gr gameking. Any one else use these ond what do you think of em. I have a 18 Lightweight m77. Thinking of starting with IMR 4895 or Imr 4350.

Re: 85 gr gamekings

One thing I've found with Gamekings of any weight and caliber is the meplats are soft and inconsistent. I've opened unopened boxes (direct from Sierra) and found meplats in various states from just fine to fugly.

The good ones get loaded for business, the others loaded for fun. If they aren't too bad, I point them but the fugly ones are for tossing..at paper.

What I'm alluding to is check your GK's for consistent meplats.....

My .243 loves the 4895 and the 85 grain barnes tsx. And is starting to like the 4895 with the 95 gr bergers.
