My 243AI pd load is a Nosler 70gr BTip/ 45-46gr H414, .005 off the lands. A mild load, and very accurate.

Some rifles will tolerate 49-50 grs H414 with that bullet weight, but mine maxes out at about 47, and shoots much better at 45-46.

80gr Berger

I use 47.3 H4350 w/Federal match primer 80 grain Berger in the lands 3400fps. ( THIS IS A MAX LOAD)
70 Baltip w/IMR 4350 48.5 grains match primers just of the lands w/bullet (shot better than H-414 for me) JUST BELOW MAX!
