Re: 243 Ackley and H4350?

My big problem with my rifle is the throut .................its way to long and wide and will NOT shoot boat-tail bullets. I addressed this problem to the Smith that built the Rifle and he has never written back. I considering having it rebarreled to the 6XC after hunting season. Having only flat base bullets to shoot as that is all that will shoot out of it, is a real downer...........not to many out there. When shooting boat-tails It shoots into about 1.00 to 1.25 with flat base its around .5 to .4 with some going into the high .3's.................and thats with H4350. There are a lot of bullets I would like to try but all are boat-tails.......................I dont like being hadicaped ............and after spending $2000 on the gun I want more options...................Right now I will be shooting 100gr Sierra Pro Hunters as they shoot great in this gun and will try the berger 80gr Flat base bullets as well........................We will see what kind of groups I get monday with 44.5gr of H4350 up to 46.0.....................Speed kills as they say so lets see what happens. The Lapua brass I have has really held up to the stiff loads I have tried ...
