i use varget andd I4064 for the lighter bullets and h4350 for the heavier ones. h4831 would be good with the heavier ones for sure. and trying different primers can tell you which one the gun likes.

Re: Winshester model 70 ...243

I have been shooting a few 55g Noslers and 62g Barnes Varmint Grenades for light loads using Varget and H380. My neighbor actually loads 55g Noslers for kids to shoot deer with because of the light recoil and good performance not that I would recommend it.

62g VG, 40.5g Varget and a WLR at 2.650 " is sub moa to over 400yards in my M700sps.

I usually use the Sierra 85g HPBT GameKing for deer on top of H4350, IMR4350, or H414. Usually 44g and a WLR or BR2 primer. 4831 would also work for these bullets. RL17 is pretty impressive as it seems to be for anything that would normally use 4350.

Winchester factory barrels are know to usually be a bit on the big side in groove diameter. SAAMI spec's 'em at .243.

If you can slug the barrel then measure its groove diameter, get bullets that are a few ten-thousandths larger. If your groove measures .2438, you will probably get best accuracy with those at .2440 or bigger.
