    I have been shooting the 22-243 Winchester for several years. I have one now with a 27" Kreiger in an 8 twist, built by Nate Dagley. I run the 75gr Amax right at 3500fps with no pressure signs. Heres my load data.

    48gr Rel 25
    Fed 210
    Lapua brass
    2.750 oal

    I have run this load in several different rifles and it shoots great in all of them.

    I shot a 22-243AI for many years. Here is whats possible when everything comes together. My velocity was 3,670 ft/sec. Your non-AI version has slightly less case capacity. RE22 is well known for its use in all the 22-243 and similar variant cartridges.
    Good luck with the fast twist 22-243, it a hoot to shoot. :D
