Berger .243 95g Classic Hunter

Just picked me up a box of these the other week to see how they did in my gun. I have to say I only shot 3 groups but I am impressed so far. My gun is a Savage that started out as a 30-06 but I took that barrel off and put on a Savage 243 barrel so I could load the bullets long and still use the magazine. It works great. Here is a picture of the three groups. I was using RL15 powder. First and last group were around 2.2" and middle group was 1.3". All shots were fired from 320 yards. I will be testi g some more loads in the next couple weeks and verifying results but I can say for sure right now these bullets look very promising.
