Which Powder for .243 and 95gr VLDs

I lookded at the Hodgdon load data and I have on hand 3 of the powders they list for this load.

Which one should I try first or would likely give me the best results? I was planning on using Varget but wasn't sure if it was the best choice after looking at the data.

I have:

Varget
IMR 4831
H1000

    I have always thought the 243Win with heavier for caliber bullets and IMR4350 was a match made in heaven. when I had my 243w I would load 40 grains of 4350 under 100 grain flatbased cup and core bullets seated touching the lands and shoot one hole groups with it, that is shooting from bench in perfect conditions. BTW, I don't know if it just me or what, but I couldn't get Varget to shoot well in any application I tried it.

    Of the 3 mentioned, 4831 would be my first choice.

    I haven't tried the Varget, but H4831 works great. I shoot the same load out my .243.
