Without my notes in front of me, I dont remember the OAL but I do remember it was 10 thou off the lands. Velocity was around 3100 and grouped under half minute consistantly.

You said you just ordered the 87 vmaxs? Are they no longer on backorder? I canceled an order with them not too long ago after waiting almost 3 months.
I had to give this load a try out of my Rem 700 BDL 243 because I use H4831sc for three other rifles. It shot a one ragged hole @ 100 yards once I got the seating depth correct.

I don't recommend this load for Rem brass as I split a few case necks.

Thanks for the load info!

Win brass
46.5 gr H4831sc
Fed 210 Primer
87 gr V-max
COL 2.68
3050 fps

I want a bullet heavy enough to knock the crap outta some yotes but also flat enough to point and squeeze out to 300. Any experience with one or the other? Or a preference to one over the other? If it helps, hides arent terribly important to me. Dead dogs are priority as that equals more live calves and lambs. Thanks!
    Try the 88gr Berger VLD FB Varmint.

    Glad it shot well for you! It's not the fastest load I've used but it has been the most consistant in my rifle. I've yet to try rem brass but I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!

    that is kind of what I thought it might be.

    I have been trying to get a load worked with H4350 for the 87 grain v-max in my 243. might have to give the H4831SC a try.
