Winshester model 70 ...243

Finaly got some cases for my Model 70 243. Just wondering if anyone else has a Model 70 in 243 and what kind of loads you got going. Would like to get a heavy bulet and a light bullet loaded . Any Advice.

    Win 70 vs Rem 700 vs other won't make too much difference.

    You first need to determine the twist rate of your barrel which will dictate what bullets you should expect to stabilize.

    If it's a new rifle, the mfg paperwork or website may tell you the twist. Otherwise, you can measure it.

    That would pretty much put your upper limit at or under 100gr bullets.

    What do you want to accomplish?

    Paper? Varmints? Big game? Distance?

    JR- you do not sat where you are. deer are not equal the whitetails here are 75 pounds. the whitetails in alberta are 300 and cost 7.5k to hunt. varmints?? prairie dogs? coyotes? i use a 70 balistic tip for coyotes and a 95 partition for deer.

    Sounds like some throphy hunting Stories. Lived in alberta over 50 years ,garage is covered with alot of deer horns most are 5x5 and I don't thank they went over 200 lbs.
    Had some one pick up some bullets for me today while I was at work Some 87 V max and some 105 HPBT Hornady Match bullets.
    Did not want those 105 at all . wanted some 100 sp. Hornady
    Don't thank those match bullets were made fore big game.
    Also asked them to pickup more H4831 and some Rem 9.5
    They brought me back some 9.5 M ! Not good again !
    Any one use Mag primers on a 243 ?
