Looking for some 243 match/long range loads. I have a 28 inch 1 in 8 twist barrel and I have 115 Dtacs, 107 sierras, 105 amaxs and rl-17 on hand. Looking for some accurate loads. Thanks

Retumbo with the 107's at 48.1 grains in Winchester brass is hard to beat...

work up, of course...

I like 39.2gr H4350, 105 AMAX. My barrel is same length and twist. I get 2965fps and as accurate as I can hold them.

I stayed away from the 115 DTAC's just because I figured I needed a little faster twist to shoot them. That and the fact that the 105 AMAX's shot so dang nice.
