GS custom for .243 win

Has anyone tried these bullets? Ive been shooting the 69gr HVHP at about 3500fps. They are the most accurate bullets ive used. They are also deadly on game. Shot a zebra standing broadside at about 200yds and it fully penetrated exiting on the other side. It went about 10yds. The next one took a full frontal at about the same disance and dropped right there. Pretty impressive for a lil 69gr bullet. Im constantly shooting 10mm groups at 100 and ive shot a 7mm group at 225. All this out of a howa 1500.

I use 43.5gr of Somchems S365, a South African powder which is about the same as your imr4350. I use remington brass. Im still a student, so i cant afford the good stuff.
