I'll post an article later to explain the reasons for this, but for now, we can just discuss it.

Remember, we're talking about long range accuracy... I have not said they won't shoot okay at shorter ranges (to about 250 yards).

they don't spin faster past 250 yards. they spin faster 0-250 yards.

    yeah... that's why I said the stuff 'em in deep.

    Hornady says they same about their 58 grain VMAX's...

    If there gonna shoot well at all, they'll shoot at 2.595" (tip to case head).

    But if you're going past 300 yards, go with 70 grainers and about 42 grains of Varget.

    H414 with the 55's and varget with the 70gr ballistic tips. Both are sweet for the 243!

    I gave them a try in a ADL cheapie Rem 243. Used Varget and got them to go 4050 fps. Man that bullet unraveled jackrabbits!
