Re: new project 243AI


You might try some Reloader 22 with the seirra's...I got the same accuracy, but with more velocity using RE-22 vs. H4350.

I also use RL22 with the 107 gr MK and 105 gr Amax. Try around 42-43 grs may want to work up but my gun did not max out until around 44-45grs with Lapua brass. The redding dies are the best I could find however I did need to send the full length type s die back to redding so they could cut some off the bottom of the die for shoulder bumping. They did it free of charge and I was pleased with the results. Good luck and good shooting.

Re: new project 243AI

Hi Tony

I'm from the uk. I have just had a 243 ai built and it has been shooting half inch groups with factory lapua ammo whilst fireforming.

I have just loaded some n160 with nosler ballistic tips (80)grain. I have got a load with 48.5 .49 and 49.5 grains to try. I will report my findings.
I have been really impressed with the rifle so far and I'm sure you too will be delighted. I have built my rifle for stalking the smaller species of Deer in the uk. Roe .Muntjac.Chinese Water Deer.

I use a 6.5x284 on Red Stags.Fallow and Sika (When I get a sika that is ) .

Good luck with the rifle and I will post some info when I have shot the other loads


Fire at will

Re: new project 243AI

I have a .243 AI as well, but Mine isn't a target/ Varmit rifle. It's actually a Lightweight mountain rifle. It has a 22" bbl and I'm shooting 100g Sierra Gamekings and using H414. It shoots OK, but I know It can shoot better.
