243

So I am getting a new Rem 700 VLS. I am looking some advice on where to start of loading. I shoot rockchucks 500 and under, mostly 300 and under, so I am thinking of using the 65 grain V-max and then Berger 105 for deer.

I thought about using Varget for the light bullets and H1000 for the 105's. Any thoughts or suggestions of powder choice?

What is a good primer to go with?

For cases I thought about just using Lapua.

Advice greatly appreciated.

srhaggerty..I've had VG success with 85gr speer bt's over 46gr IMR4831. They have a good BC and fly real good too. You'll have to have at least a 8 twist barrel for 105's I'd think. A 9 twist might do ok too. I'm shooting 105 AMAX in a 6br with varget and it is very accurate. Every barrel has it own likeing to powders bullets etc so you'll have to try different combos to see what it likes. Good luck.

I thought so to, but it showed it. I wanted that one do to the temp consistency.

Your barrel might be right on the edge for the Amax, all you can do is try it.

Give H4831 a try with the Amax, it worked pretty well with the Amax in mine (1:8 twist), but not as well as Re 22.
