    I've had good results with IMR-7828ssc and 105 VLDs.

    Found the particulars...

    1-8" twist Pac-Nor .243 and Berger 105 VLDs.

    Of the several powder/primer combos I tried I found the accuracy I was looking for with IMR-7828ssc @ 43grs, CCI-BR2s and Lapus brass.

    My records show the average velocity to be 3002 fps with an E.S. of 21.0 and an S.D. of 8.0. (CED Millennium)
