    Does any one have any data on a starting point for H1000 with a 105 Amax for a 243?
    Thank in advance

    winmagman,
    You can try H1000 if you want but even in my 6-284 (it has quite a bit bigger capacity) it was just a bit too slow with 105 and 107's. try RL22 imr7828 H4831.

    Thanks brian
    I'm trying Re 22 right now, accuracy looks promising but the ES is usually in the 40-50 fps range, was lookig to fill the case up a little more. I've got Re 22, H1000, and IMR 4831 in house right now so I'll try all of them first.

    Whats the barrel length on your 6-284?

    how is that possible? Do you mean windage accuracy sans the vertical stringing?

    Still in the barrel break in process and some limited load testing. I shot loads up to 45.0 grs with Re 22, no pressure signs. Tried 5 shot groups with 43.0 and 43.5 both were around 1" at 100 yds with the 43.5 being the smaller. I'm hopeing to find a load between 43.5 and 45.0 that is .5 moa or better with a lower ES. May or may not happen but at least the gun didn't print a "pattern" to start with.

    You might need to come down more. Take a look at <font color="purple"> Q. How exact do I need to get my powder loads: </font> on my FAQ

    When you get to testing other powders try retumbo. Works for me.
