Re: 243 Ackley Loads

Thanks Lewis.

I have tried some 70 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips. With h414 and your right .. It metered beautifully I just need to play about with powder a little to get the groups tighter.

Re: 243 Ackley Loads

I have a couple of different barrels chambered in this cartridge. The 1-10 twist I shoot the 68gr custom match with RL-19 and get excellent results out to 300 then they open up. I also shoot the 80 grainers w/H-4831 in this barrel.
The 1-9 twist I shoot the 95 Berger or 105 A-Max with N-165 and get great performance well beyond the 500yrd mark.
Could not get the that 70 grain Bal-Tip to shoot real tight in either barrel as I had expected to.

That 105 is my pet load.

Lapua brass CCI -BR-2's

75 Gr V-max

48.5 gr H414 or Win 760

Win case

WLR primers

I have been using this load for varmints in My Model 700 VS .243 that was reamed to AI. Groups under 1/2" if I do my part. This loads makes small critter blow up and bigger critters fall over in the tracks.

Robert, Don't forget to play with seating depth. it's amazing how much difference that can make. that 3/4" load may shoot under 1/2" at the right seating depth. my $.02, treeman
