Hornady 7th edition recomends;
38.3gr of H 4350 for 2600fps
39.7gr of H 4350 for 2700fps
41.0gr of H 4350 for 2800fps SAAMI MAX LOAD
For 105gr A-MAX .500 B.C. IN .243 Win
Hornady side note;105 A-MAX will not stabilize in a 1-10 and slower twist bbl.
I do not load for this caliber, so I have no hands on experience with these loads, but its word for word from Hornady book
(Ironicly, they have 0 load data for 105 gr A-MAX using IMR 4350) Good luck hope this helps

H-4350 and IMR 4831 are real close. You can increase your load about two grains with H-4350 when subbing it for IMR 4350. It is a very good powder and I have several good loads with it in a number of rifles. Try H-414 or RE- 19 or 22 if you have any of that.

twist rate in my gun is 1in9 1/8 so it should be ok. I'll pick some up since i'm heading to the range tomorrow gun)

My serria program i have shows an accuracy load for their 107 mk with imr4350 so that is why i am looking for that particular powder

i loaded a lot of rounds with I-4350 years ago. i had good success. if i was you i would use h-4350 now. it is an "extreme powder" , or re-17 as new shooter said.

No my book doesnt give pet loads, but it does state;
''During our testing several powders performed very well, especiallyVIHT N-140, IMR 4064, and, VIHT N-160.The best groups, and uniformity were obtained from Varget.''
They also warn against light or reduced loads when using slow burning powders with long bullets, as they behave differently with light or reduced charges.And may cause unexpected high pressure.
Sorry:cool:

VHIT N-165 powder with Hornady 105gr A-MAX in .243 Win(Hornady 7th edition)

VHIT N-165, 40.3 gr=2600fps
VHIT N-165, 42.0 gr=2700fps
VHIT N-165, 43.7 gr=2800fps**SAAMI MAX LOAD**
This is the only VHIT powder listed for use with Hornady 105gr A-MAX, in .243 Win.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Heres the RL powder charts;
RL-19, 40.7gr =2700fps
RL-19, 41.9gr =2800fps
RL-19, 43.1gr =2900fps**SAAMI MAX LOAD**
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RL-22, 40.2gr =2600fps
RL-22, 41.9gr =2700fps
RL-22, 43.5gr =2800fps**SAAMI MAX LOAD**
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The only powder I see that runs the length of the chart is WIN WMR,from 2500fps to 3000fps

Just got back from the range. 41gr H4350 shot best but i think i might be able to tighten it up a bit by moving it out alittle had it seated in more than usual. Anyone use varget with this weight bullet or is it too fast?

I'm not for sure , but seems to me -looking at the book(s) the 4350 series is better at heavy lifting than the varget. I've guys shooting 105gr in 1;9 twist but the manufacturers recommend 1:8or better? Good luck.
