243 WSSM reloading

A buddy would like to start reloading for his 243 WSSM. He was wondering what others think of this cartridge and what loads and bullets you are using. The gun is being used as woodchuck and coyote gun in NW Ohio. Thanks.

Re: 243 WSSM reloading

So far out of my WSSM Savage Striker 16" barrel, i've gotten the 100 Speer BTSP to around 2850, i believe with H4350-- i'll have to check my notes at home in the AM as i'm at work now. It's an 8 twist Broughton, and i hope to get either the 105 A-Max shooting, or 87 V-Max (the highest BC pure varmint bullet made). This is a spot and stalk coyote rig, and it's gonna be interesting to see which bullet gives me the best terminal ballistics to as far as i can kill 'em.
