Re: .243 AI

Depending on what twist you get. I shoot a 75gr vmax with varget at 3800. Accuracy is excellent out to 400yds, but I have not shot it beyond that. Mine is a 24" 1in12 shilen.

Re: .243 AI

OK, I went the other way. 1 in 14 twist for high velocity 55s with some very impressive groups. I figured that a .243AI with heavy bullets is, well, a 25-06! I've got one of those and it works great on deer and antelope. I varmint hunt with it for the most part, although, on a whim I loaded up some 87gr Barnes XLCs for it this year and dropped a goat with it. The low recoil and deadly accuracy makes it very fun to shoot. Get a gauge to check for case head separation in your fire formed cases, if you don't have everything just right, all that brass you've got will only be useful to the local recycling center!

Work up to .......

51.0g of R#25 or H1000 with the 105's, right at 3300 fps.

Remember, work up to these loads in your rifle.
