.243 winchester load/barrel breakin 2 part question
I just bought my son a Savage .243 winchester youth rifle for graduating his hunter educatuion class. This will make him eligable to hunt this fall, and I am so looking forward to this. My son has been coming hunting with me since he was 4 years old so now that he will be able to carry a gun and shoot stuff is very exciting for both him and I.
Anyways I want to shoot 85 gr Barnes TSX bullets out of this gun. Do any of you guys have a load for this bullet/powder combination that has worked well for you? Also I see alot of loads on the internet with a Federal 210 primer. I have a decent supply of Federal 215M primers would these primers work for a load in a .243? Any help would be great.
Also I have seen alot of different points of view on the proper barrel breakin procedure. What do you recommend for breaking in a new rifle barrel?
