    I had great results with my 6.5 Creedmoor with RL-26 and I am interested to see if anyone could help me get started with a 243 AI with RL-26. I have a 26 inch barrel, Lapua brass and 103 ELD-X. I am honestly just looking for a starting point and ill do the work from there. If someone is inclined to run a Quickload you'd be my hero. Thanks.

    Why not start near (or just under) your 6.5CM load? 6CM & .243Win use the same load data for the most part. And since people usually start with a higher load for the standard parent cartridge on AI chamberings, I don't see why this would be any different.
