I don't have a 30" barrel, but out of my 26" I shoot 44gr IMR 4350 with an 87gr V-MAX for varmints out to 700yds. For deer I shoot 42gr of IMR 4350 with a 100gr Sierra SPBT. Haven't done much shooting with the 100s but know the 87s are super accurate. I plan to try 105gr A-MAXs but as of yet haven't, would probably shoot 41.5gr IMR 4350 with them though.

accurate magpro gives good velocity in the 243 with heavy bullets.
