    Am developing a load for .243 using hndy 75 Vmax. The brass I am starting with is unfired. Once it is fireformed I will be able to play with resizing and aol, but until then would be handy to know what the recommended aol for this bullet is. Would anyone know where I might be able to find this imformation?
    Thanks a bunch, Denis

    Yeah. It's in your chamber.

    If your bullet doesn't jam into the rifling - and it won't - it's okay to develop your charges. For that short bullet in that chamber it's more likely to fall out of the case before you can make rifling contact so don't worry about it.
