243 AI and Retumbo

My newest build should be complete in the next couple of weeks. Anyone got any pet loads for a 243 ackley and retumbo? I would prefer them to be with the 107's, 115's, and 95 gr VLD's.

Any input is appreciated.

Can't directly help you with the AI version, but I'm running Retumbo in a regular .243 with 105 Scenars that might be a decent starting point for you.

I'm using 47.5 grains of Retumbo in Lapua brass with a WLR primer. This load is about a grain below max and delivers 2,975 fps from a 24" Schneider barrel.

The beatings will continue until morale improves.
