Re: .243 Win & Berger 95 gr VLD load

There are conflicting internet forum posts on the question if 95 gr VLD bullets will stabilize long range with 10" twist.

There are those adamant that it will and those that it will not.

I have 8" and 10" twist barrels and some 95 gr VLD, but I have not experimented with long range.

I do know that 14" twist will stabilize 75 gr Vmax short range, but not long range.

I use RL-19 over a fed 210m primer with my rem 700 and get half in groups at 200, dont know about speed though.

I have tried quite a few different powders with the 95gr Bergers and the best results that I have achieved for accuracy and velocity by far is 42.2gr Reloder17 powder, OAL 2.890".

Re: .243 Win & Berger 95 gr VLD load

Question to little black. How many grains of powder are you running with Rl-19, what cases , and what is your COAL?
Might try your load out.

The powder is Rl17 NOT 19, charge is 42.2gr and COAL is 2.890". I had the throat re-done on my gun.
