243 ackley reloads

My new rifle in 243 ackley is almost completed. It is a winchester push feed trued by Greg Tannel, Bartlein 8 twist barrel, cdi bottom metal. I intend to shoot 107 bergers or 115 dtac's. Any load suggestions

    I am shooting 105 A-max's over N-165. I was shooting 95gr Berger's w/H4831 but had to slow them down to shoot really well. 1-9 Pac-Nor 27''.

    The Berger had to run at < 3250 to shoot. I'm running the A-max's faster and they shoot really well too and very deadly...did I mention and cheaper. Speed is why I built an AI. I have a stock .243 that shoots the 95 Bal-Tips w/AA3100 (what's left)

    I use the COW method to form brass.

    I shoot N-560 with the 105 grain A-maxes and Retumbo for the 105 grain Berger VLDs and will be trying the new 105 grain hybrids soon.

    The most accurate load I have shot was given to me by a benchrest buddy of mine only difference is I dropped 1grn in powder charge due to brass differences, I'm using 47.5grns H4831sc under 105 bergers in reformed lakecity 308 brass with fed210m primers, .010" in the lands, I also use 105amaxs because I use this rifle to explode groundhogs, his load was 1grn higher in formed Lapua brass.
