I use H4350 now and my rifle likes it a lot but it's not the fastest load.

Win Brass
Fed 210
42.4 gr H4350
87 gr vmax
2.66 - 2.68
2950 fps

Do you know how far out of the lands you are?

I did not get very good groups with 42.5, they were better with 43.5 grains. I will have to go measure the groups.

My load components so far are:
Rem brass
Federal 210 match primer
H4350
87 grain v-max
0.030 out of the lands

the rifle is a Rem 700 SPS stainless

I just got a chronograph and have not measured any yet due to other things detracting from trigger time...

If you are looking for Vmax, do a quick search online. There are several companies that have some for sale. In my opinion, the 87 grain Vmax is one of the best bullets out there for varmits with the 243.

X2. Accurate, great B.C., and hell on coyotes! I just bought a few boxes from Midway. I had given up on them a while ago until I was informed that they were available again.

If I remember correctly my rifle shot better 0.04 out of the lands with this load. Also, I forgot to mention that I use a Lee factory crimp die for my 243.

I got a 0.4" group out of 43.5 grains of H4350 with the 87 grain v-max, the next best was about an inch or better at 43, then worse at 44 and little better again at 44.5. These are 0.030 out of the lands.

part of me is wondering if a more rigid stock wouldn't help things out some... I am not too sur ehow found to get of the factory tupperware stocks they clamp on the 700's

Also wondering what an economical alternative stock might be...? Been looking around a little at the boyds laminates and bell and carlson medalists....

I also get around a half inch with a box of hornady custom factory ammo with the 75 grain hollow point bullet in it.
