    Has anyone had success (accuracy and stability) with the 243 win with loading bullets over 100 gr using a factory Remington barrel (24 in, standard contour, 1:9.125 twist)? I would like to load up some 105 Berger/Hornady/Lapua but heard they can be difficult to stabalize in a 1:9 bbl. Your thoughts? Any recipes would be greatly appreciated.

    I PERSONALY HAVE NOT SHOT ANY BULLETS OVER 95GR IN MY 243 BUT I HAVE HEARD A 105 HAS NO PROBLEM IN A 1&9.25 TWIST. I plan on trying this out as soon as I use up my 80gr Bergers up.
    Cheers:D
