    I've had much better luck with H4350 shooting 105 Amax bullets in both the 243 Win and 6mm Creedmoor(exact same case capacity as the 243 Win). I think my 243 load was around 40 grains (Lapua brass)and the Creedmoor was 43 grains(Hornady brass). Don't know velocity of the 243 but was running the Creedmoor at 3170 28" barrel. BR2 primers in both.

    I'm shooting the 105 A-max out of my 1-9 Pac-Nor 243AI. I'm using a case full of VV-165 BR-2 primers. Shoot in the 2's

    My standard 243 I shoot the 95 Bal-Tip with 3100 powder BR-2's in my stock Sako. Got better groups and velocity using this powder instead of the 4831's

    I've been using 45 grains of the h4831sc with the 105 berger hunting bullet in my 243 win. Very good accuracy....velocity avg. is 3020 fps.
