Good luck!
Everyone seems pretty tight lipped on thios one. Not sure if there aren't any or what.

I have been trying to get more than one answer on powders to use for the 85gr, besides IMR4350.

I'm really hoping to get to use that 95 gr. Nos BT. I think Mac and quick have been working on some loads for their bull barrels with the heavier bullets. Maybe they'll post here soon. :wink:

well I get .75 to 1 inch groups with my .243 handi with standard barrel at 100 yrds. I use IMR 3031, 95 gr noslet BT spitzer with winchester primer. My rifle shot best with barrel free floated.

Sorry, I'm goin the other way with mine for yotes, I have 65gr Vmax and 55gr CT ballistic silvertip loads to work on. As soon as I get some of the Fusion 95gr ammo, I'll post the results, it's backordered right now.

So far for me...42.5 grains Reloader 22...Remington nickle cases...Remington 9-1/2 primers.Nosler 95grain Silver Ballistic Tip..COAL...2.777"..it's a max load .....what may be safe in my rifle may not be safe in yours....so reduce 5% and work up looking for pressure signs...
