243 load 95gr Btip and H1000

I was wanting to start a long range coyote load with a .243 Remington VLS that I just picked up for a really good price. I am wanting to shoot 95gr Nosler ballistic tips and H1000 powder. Anyone tried this combo or similar. Also how far off the lands do they usually like? Any help appreciated.

Thanks

I haven't tried H1000 in my .243 but I get superb (.2's) accuracy with 44.0gns of Vihtavuori N 560 and BR2 primers. My velocity from a 26" barrel averages 3088fps (5-shot groups). My OAL is 2.2600" and I run them .010" off the LaG's. This OAL is measured from the base to ogive. I took a groundhog in Va. at 580yds with this load last year. JohnnyK.

Thanks I appreciate the reply. I called Hodgdon today and asked them what they thought of it. The tech said for what Im wanting to shoot he thought it would actually be his top choice for a heavier bullet.

I wouldn't leave out H4831sc or H4350 of the equation either. Both great powders.

He said second best would probably be 4831 followed 4350. Im glad the H1000 will work because I have 4 pounds of it laying around that Im not using for anything else.

Yea but they work really well so if you not having much luck with the H1000 dont beat yourself over the head with it. Switch it up if its not working and try the others. Next you were asking about seating depths. Most of the time a small test at .01 .02 and .03 off the lands will give you at least one descent place to start. Sometimes they like more jump but usually one of theses will work "ok". I never put bullets into the lands anymore. It has been hard on a few of my barrels including a lot of extra throat wear i didnt need. Now when i look for a powder charge im usually right at or just off the lands. Then work my way back after i find a charge thats keeping them real close in speed.
