    Is the faster twist for the 115 DTACs too much to also run the 87gr V-Max bullets? I am putting together a 243 AI and I want to use the 115 DTACs as my long range bullet (antelope) but have to run the V-Max for coyotes as I need a fragmentary bullet to reduce ricochet chances.

    Anything else to keep in mind (throat length, etc) in trying to build a gun to shoot both of these bullets?
