Gotta love the 243AI one of my favorites. What bullet are you planning to push with the 7.75 twist? Sounds about right for the 115s. Good luck with it, looking forward to a range report.

105 to 115 probably.

DTACS new 111 if they EVER get it out for sale...

has polymer tip, .600 BC, and it should make a better hunting bullet than the 115.

A 111gr DTAC w/.600 BC? That sounds like an awesome bullet! I'll be waiting for those to come out.

Thanks for the link Sendero Man! Can't wait to get my hands on a box of those. I really love the Berger 108 BT (.546 BC). I'm getting 3100fps in standard 243 w/26" barrel. I think I could easily get the 111gr bullet to the same velocity wich would do wonders for my longrange ballistics!
