Re: 243 Win, 1:9.5 twist - Bullet/Powder combinations?

Well I got my load data staright from the Nosler book, so you can believe what you want...

They call for 53g of H380 which is good for 4069fps w/24" bbl. So not all out of wack as you might think...I've shot and cronographed this load for years out of my moms little Ruger and I get between 4000-4100fps..

I cant even fit 53g of powder in the .243 cases, which is why I dont even weight the charge, just scoop full, level off at the top and seat a bullet, works for me....Aint even a MAX load...
