the easiest way is to simply shoot factory loads in it (assuming the chamber is done right). But you could also load standard .243 cases with a good heavy generic bullet, and a good load to do the samething

I had not seen one of those before. 90-95% is pretty darn nice. Saves a ton of barrel life as well as powder and bullets. Email sent down the road to the boys at Hornady.
