Hey folks,
I have a stash of 95 gr ballistic tips and recently purchased a 700 vls in .243. I know the info is on this site somewhere but i am lazy and am just going to ask. Anyone have favorite loads with this combo?
Thanks for your time.

I use the 90 grain version...but...

H4350 works great...42 grains should be a safe max for your 95 grain BT, start at about 40 grains with a COAL of 2.710"

I use a COAL of 2.735" in my rifle...may or may not work in yours.

We didn't have much luck with the 4350s for whatever reason. AA3100 did outstanding in a 25" PacNor barreled 243 I had made for a friend. Win brass, Federal match primers.

I have tried H4350 based on some other reviews but was not happy with the results. Groups ran around 1" at 100 yards. I am having some luck with R22. Have to keep playing with her. I wish I had some AA3100 to try.
Thanks for the input.

Just getting ready to load some 95 gr BT also. Is there a difference in IMR7828 and 7828sc in regards to burn rate or load data. Exp- is 43 grs of 7828 the same as 7828sc ??
My other choice is IMR 4350....which is best? Savage model 11- 22" barrel.

Thanks

Anyone try N560? Nosler book show highest velocity and most accurate powder tesed. I am not sure how available it is here though.

N560 is an "ok" powder... but due to it's large granular size, it's a trick to weigh it properly. People have been reporting good to great performance from the "superporfamance" powder.
