Re: New Model Seven .243 Thoughts and loads?
I had a Model 7 SS in .260 Rem that I just sold due to lack of use [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] I've been loading for an older 700 in .243 for the oldest stepson. I'm probably not going to bother w/ deer class loads, as he's decided to be a bowhunter like his dad. He does use it for the occasional attempt at rockchucks and coyotes, though, and I cooked up a good load using 49.0 gr H414 and a Sierra 55gr BlitzKing. Yee-owza! Shoots little sub-half inch clover leafs. The gun is only a little heavier than the current Model 7's so it may work OK for you.
