    I recently scored a sweet deal on a Cooper M22 in .243? It has a 1:10" twist 24" barrel? For those of you who have a Cooper .243 or a similar profile Wilson barrel, have you had any success with 105-107 gr bullets. Particularly interested in 105 A-Max

    Thanks

    Go under 100 gr. bullets. tthe twist will not stabalize 105 gr.

    Thanks I figured as much but I'm new to the caliber. I may try 87gr V-Max.

    You think a 95gr VLD would work?
