243 load suggestions with 95gr BT

Hey folks,
I have a stash of 95 gr ballistic tips and recently purchased a 700 vls in .243. I know the info is on this site somewhere but i am lazy and am just going to ask. Anyone have favorite loads with this combo?
Thanks for your time.

    I use the 90 grain version...but...

    H4350 works great...42 grains should be a safe max for your 95 grain BT, start at about 40 grains with a COAL of 2.710"

    I use a COAL of 2.735" in my rifle...may or may not work in yours.

    We didn't have much luck with the 4350s for whatever reason. AA3100 did outstanding in a 25" PacNor barreled 243 I had made for a friend. Win brass, Federal match primers.

    I have tried H4350 based on some other reviews but was not happy with the results. Groups ran around 1" at 100 yards. I am having some luck with R22. Have to keep playing with her. I wish I had some AA3100 to try.
    Thanks for the input.
