Re: bullet for 1:10" .243

I have a CZ 550 in 1/10 twist and I tried many different powders (Varget, IMR 4350, IMR 4064, RL-15) to try and get 100gr Core-Lokts to stabilize. I could not get them to stabilize for the life of me. I've been relegated to the 87gr VMAX and I don't trust them for use on deer. Therefore, I see this gun as my varmint rifle.

Has anyone tried the 90gr Scirocco?

To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.

I shoot the 95 grain Nosler BT in my Sako for deer using AA3100 powder and have excellent accuracy and velocity.

The 85 grain Sierra GK shot very well and performed well in a Model 70 (no longer own) for deer using IMR 4350.

Each rifle is different and some will stabilize and some won't when you get in the 95 grain and higher bullets.
Hurry up and shoot that barrel out and get 'yer self a 1-9 in 243AI and shoot them 105 A-max.
