6mm 62gr Barnes Grenade Bullets

I bought 400 of these bullets looking to find a good load for prairie dogs in the spring. Does anyone have a good load for this particular bullet out of a 243? The gun is a savage 243 model 10 predator. Barrel is a 9.25 twist. Will be shooting all lapua brass and CCI BR-2 primers. Neef a good powder if anyone has a good idea.

Varget works for me too. IF I gave you my load and you used it you would only be loading for my rifle and I don't load it out.

Re: 6mm 62gr Barnes Grenade Bullets

Has anyone tried the Nosler Lead - free Ballistic Tip in comparison? I purchased a box .243/ 55 gr & 42.5 gr of RE 15. Areas where I hunt a lot of Federal Waterfowl Production areas and I don't need a ticket for having lead bullets . I am also interested in non-lead for my pistol.
