Long Range .243 Win Loads

I have a Rem 700 VLS in 243, using a Burris 3x9x40 balistic plex and have a pretty good load now using 85gr Sierra HPBT over 37gr of Varget. I'm getting an average of 3050fps on the chrony and averaging .5 MOA at 100 and under 2 in at 300.

So now I would like to begin trying to shoot 300+ but I think I need a bullet with a higher BC.

My rifle has a 1/9.125 twist. How long of bullet will it stabilize?

Which bullets and powder do you recomend? I currently have Varget, IMR4831, BLC2 and Benchmark.

Will this scope work with dailing in MOA or should I get a new one. I was thinking of looking to change the Bushnell 10x40 Tatical.

Thanks,
Scott

my sps varmint shoots the 107 smk real well with imr 4064. Shoots in the .2's at 100 yards.

You might look at the Berger 95 gr. VLD's.

Will the 1 in 9 1/8 twist stailize the 95gr VLDs?

It will be close, but I would guess on the side of yes.

It "should", Berger recommends a 1/9 twist. You will just have to push them a quicker.
