.243 wich powder with 85 gr Barnes TSX

I am absolutly new to reloding.
I would like to reload .243 wit 85 gr Barnes TSX,to be used in a CZ 550.
A friend who has some experience recomended to use IMR 3031 powder and we have some Winchester large rifle primers No WLR.
Are this components O.K.?
I would like some advise from you,since I can get some other powder brands like Hogdon or Alliant.
Any input will be apreciated.

There are many good powders for the .243 with 85 gr. bullet. I think 3031 is a little fast for that weight. I would try Varget, RL15, H4350, in that order. Get a good reloading manual, and drop maximum charges they list by 10% for beginners.

IMR 4064 usually will give great speed and tight groups in a 243.

Had very good results from slower powders like IMR 4831 and RL22 in my rifle with the barnes. Also in my experience barnes like to be pushed fast.
