243AI load for the Sierra 85 BTHP

I need load data for the 243AI with the Sierra 85 BTHP.
I used 44 grn IMR 4350 for fireforming and it was sub-MOA.
I also have some Berger 95 VLD and 87 V-Max to load.
Use for deer @ 500 or less.

THANKS
Coach

The picture is of a 38 grains of IMR 4064 load with R-P brass and federal 210M primers set to -.010 from the lands.

I would also recomend the IMR 4007 as a very suitable powder for the 243 Ai.

Whuppity do, my 300WM will throw a 110gr at 3800fps, guess I'm a bigger man than you or something? What is your point here?

Nothing wrong with a 243AI unless you get some sick pleasure from replacing barrels annually.

Re: 243AI load for the Sierra 85 BTHP

I guess I couldn't resist the temptation to throw a rock into the lake for ripple effect. Of course there is nothing wrong with the 243 AI ,I love Ackley stuff. At times I'm a little envious at the ease of getting your brass. Plus getting so close to my velocity with way less powder.Burning up barrels ?Aren't all our hobbies expensive ? So far under a 1,000 through my BBL and I'm still getting occasional 1/4MOA.
