Re: Whats your .243 AI loads? Powder bullet etc

my Ackley load N160 44.0 88 Berger vel 3400 3 shots 100 yds 0.268.
This would not get me in the runing for bench rest shooting, but
good enough for ground hogs. Hope this will help someone.

My favorite load for my Ackley is 47.2Gr's. of H-4831 behind Molyed Sierra 107Gr Mk's out of a 28"Hart nine twist, using Lapua Brass and Russian Primers. M.V.=3238 fps. Very accurate and repeatable. I'm jumping them .007 They don't have the splat factor as some of the more frangible bullets but they kill things at a very long distance.

I've had luck with varget and 87 vld. 41 grs seated .02 off the lands. 3365fps.
Currently working with H4831SC and 95 & 105 VLD. Looks promising.
Pic out a spot,a single hair, and aim for that spot.
