243 long range questions
My next build will be a long range 243. I plan on an 8 twist barrel, but am wondering about COAL. I want to keep the rifle as a repeater, so that will determine a lot of what else I can do with it. Thus I want to draw on the experience of this forum.
I figure bullets in the 105-107 weight for sure, but also wondering about the 115's. Has anyone here shot either the 115 DTAC or the 115 Berger, through an 8 twist barrel? Did they stabilize and how long did you load them?
I also wonder about throat depth for those bullets. In my thinking, the rifle would most often be shot from 100-600yds and hopefully get a chance to 1000 on occasion. I would use the 115s (if they work) for long range target only, cause I think there are better hunting bullets. If need be I could single load them, but I wouldn't want to make the throat super long for them and make it inaccurate for the shorter bullets.
