Re: 243 wssm build ??????
You real might want to consider the custom barrel as mentioned. I have a M70 Coyote action in .243 wssm, with a 30’ in Pac Nor 1-8 twist polygonal match barrel… dropped into a McMillan A2 adjustable Tac stock; glass is a Nightforce 5.5 22x56; This combo is a 1k death ray, using 107gr Sierra match kings. I started shooting at first with Tubbs; DTAC 115gr. which is a “great” bullet, but it requires; 1-7.5 or 1-7 twist to really stabilize them. This cartridge is at its best with heavier bullets, the cartridge seems to have an inherit accuracy potential as cartridges go. The powder of choice here is H4350 I run the 107gr’ers at 3050 fps, I could easily push it up quite a bit with no pressure, but I don’t really need more for 1k and it gives me longer barrel life.
