    wondering if anyone knows a starting point for this in a standard 243 for RL22 I would think the 105 VLD loads would work too.
    Thanks. Shawn

    If RL-22 doesn't work for you (it didn't for me) try 4831SC and H4350 my 243 liked these powders much better.

    "Hornady 7th Edition"​

    Red denotes maximum load.




    OAL 2.630" - Primer-Federal 210
    A-Max-105gr - RL-22 - 40.2gr- 2600fps - 43.5gr- 2,800fps

    A note said that the 105 grain A-Max bullet would not stabalize in 1in10" and slower twist Bbls.​

    My 700 VLS says it is 9 1/8", is that going to work?

    It says a 1 in 9" or faster for the A-Max 105 gr.
