    I have some 65grn vmax's for my .243 to reload. Can I use 4350 for this load since I have some available or is it not recommended for this light of a bullet? And if so could someone give some load data since I can't find that particular combo. I'll be shooting it out of a stock rem700 22" barrel.

    My loads are similar to Ron's H4895 for 55-62grn pills, Varget-RL15-Imr4895 for 65-80grn pills, Imr or H4350 for 85grn and up. You just can't get enough 4350 in the case for a 65grn vmax, you'd be around 44-47grns with varget or Imr4895. Other good choices, since powder is hard to find, are RL15, ar comp, pp2000mr, aa2520, H380, Tac, cfe223, blc2, ww748, 4064, 4320, vv n140 or 540 maybe n150 but that would be a case full as well.
