    I was curious what twist you're shooting, I have a barrel on the way with a 1:8 twist and was planning on shooting the 105gr Berger VLD because I wasn't counting on being able to stablize the 115 DATC. Sorry I can't help you with load info my book doesn't list the 243 AI.

    Sendero,
    I havent tried the Retumbo in my 243AI yet, but I have been thinking of trying it like yourself. I'm shooting the 107 sierra's in front of 45 gr Reloader 22. I have tried the 4350, and I couldn't get it shoot very well at all. I would sure be interested in knowing how your Retumbo loads work out.

    I am shooting 48.5 of RL25 right now. It is doing good...

    Am maybe thinking Retumbo will be to slow...

    Think I'll go load some 7828, MRP or MRP2. Was told they might work well too.

    I have had my best luck with around 46gr vv560 the 115s and WLRs, but that rl25 load looks interesting in quickload.
