Re: New savage LRP 243 owner need load advise

i won the first 1000 yard match i ever shot in with a remington 700 with a 12 twist barrel. , i was shooting 87 and 88 grain bullets. the twist rate is not everything. by getting all i could out of the only target rifle i had, made the difference.

    In my savage with a 9.25 twist 243 I shoot 95 berger vld. they group under 1 moa at all ranges and will give a nice round hole at 600 (as far as I've shot it) so I know there is more ground to get. I push it with 4831 but have had good luck with 4350 too. Was going to see if the 105 amax shot well in it but since they are going to suspend production of it......I bagged that Idea.

    Send it back to Savage for a replacement barrel... I had one in 260 Rem, you could probably find that post.... Savage never fixed that problem, but replaced rifle with 6BR with even more issues ;-)

    Why is Hornady suspending production of the 105? It's a great deer bullet.
