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.
just got done getting my load figuered out for the .243 with 85 gr TSX bt I went with 45.0 grains of hunter and fed 210m primers. work verry well for me out of a savage with a 1 & 9.5 twist . good luck
