95 gr. berger vld
I've been lurking around this site for a while now, but just joined and this is my first post. I shoot a Remington 700 VLS in .243 Win. I have been trying to come up with a good long range load for it, so I tried the 105 gr A-MAX with IMR 4350, and Retumbo. It seems as though the twist rate of the barrel isn't quite fast enough to stabilize the bullet. According to Remington, the barrel is a 1:9.125" twist. Hornady recommends 1:9 twist. I thought I might try the 95 gr. Berger VLD in this rifle, but would like some input from some of you that have experienced a similar situation. With this barrel, am I limited only to the low BC varmint bullets, or is there hope for me. I would like to find something to get me by until I can rebarrel with a faster twist, or a different caliber. Thanks guys.
