it will shoot them faster but best accuracy was around 3400-50

my bbl is hart 1-8 twist and it does shoot 90gr bergers. I shot some 90gr sierra to and they shot fine. I think it will shot the 90gr in a 1-8 because of the velocity of the 22-243. I have shot mine at targets to 1200 yards without any problems from the 90 gr bergers.
