    Shawn,

    You kinda narrowed the field down by your two choices but I will give you my 243 AI pet load all the same .

    107 Sierra match king over 41.6 grs. of h54350. Jumped 40 or so. A little over 3000( 3050 or so ) and very accurate . Very accurate . That is with a 7.5 twist Schneider bbl at 26 inch length .

    shawn68....

    I have a load for the 105gr Berger VLD......
    48.5gr of RE-22, seated softly into the lands....avg velocity is 3247 fps out of a 27.5" Lilja 3 groove. Very low es, and extremely accurate in my rifle...1.5-2" at 500 yds. The Berger does wonders on deer and antelope also /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    No pressure at all....I am going to up the powder a little and see what happens when we get some warmer-not rainy weather. I think I am going to try some Ramshot Hunter also. I know my dad is using H380 with the 70 gr BT's and he runs just over 3800 fps out of his 26" barrel.

    my barrel is 1:9.... Do you think I can pull off the 105 VLD? I read that a 1:8 is recomended, but dosnt barrel length play a role in bullet stabillity?

    Shawn,

    You could give it a try...the extra speed of the AI might stabilize that bullet. I bought 800 bullets a while back, I could send you a few if you want to try them.
