Use accuracy loads from Nosler reloading manual. 1 1/4" @ 200 with both out of custom .243 winchester 1x10 twist. H4895 is around 4000 fps and Varget load is around3600 fps. Varget load is similar to 22-250 velocity with 55 grain bullet.

I have about all the same to say except I use 45 grains of IMR 4895 and I found better accuracy with the 55 gr. Sierra Blitzkings over the Nosler 55's. Maybe my Tikka likes green tips better than purple tips.

Like LTLR I've burned up a couple of barrels shooting H414 and 55 Noslers.
Kind of a pain but a drop tube is your friend with this combo.

65 gr Vmax is the lightest bullet I use in 243 and it is the most accurate.

My guess is that I am not dealing with recoil correctly, and that 55 gr would be even more accurate.
