I've been trying to work up a load for one of my 243's. I wanted to use the 90 grain Sierra TGK bullet, but I also have some Hornady 90 grain ELD-X bullets that I tried. I can get this rifle to shoot very accurately with almost any other bullet weight, especially with the 85 Sierra HPBT, and the 95 SST and Nosler BT. However, these 90 grain bullets just do not seem to group as good, no matter how I load them. I've tried W760, Staball, IMR4350, and H4350, along with several different powders and COAL.

Just wondering what experiences and load data anyone else has used with them and the 243.

1 year wait for those vapor trails. Don't spend them all at once!

Regarding 90 gr bullets, they were attractive to those with older 1:10 barrels. Not sure if they worked but I changed over to 1:8 twist barrels and don't shoot anything less than 100 gr bullets in my 243 and 6mm rifles.

If I had a 1:10 twist barrel it would be shooting 55 and 58 gr bullets at varmints. But I don't plan to go back.

EdithMouthRape,

If only again: "Simply cite any/all words,that you personally find challenging,as being "too big" or "too Technical" for you. Hint.".

Feel free to frost same,with the picture(s) that is/are "too clear" for your "abilities" to "comprehend". Hint.

You WOKE Melting Snowflakes,are a "rugged" lot and REALLY "know" your stuff. The only things you "shoot" are your fhuqking mouth and Imagination. Hint.

More than a few Manufacturers are HILARIOUSLY still offering 10" RPM 243Win's,as their only "option". In the mass cited,the Skinner is THE pick of the litter,due accuracy,precision,consistency,aero form,Lot to Lot uniformity and Terminal Effects. Hint.

It is fhuqking HILARIOUS,how many Crying Karens can soooooo reliably fhuqk up such SIMPLISTIC matters. Hint.

I shoot a "few" chamberings in said bore size and often on the same day,for R&D extrapolations. Nothing slower than 8",that morning and a 105 'Max having the least BC. Hint.

Well that will change quickly.....Give it a couple of weeks...

Gale Root spent a lot of R&D working for Nosler to develop the 6 mm 90 and 95 grain Ballistic Tips for big game hunting .
He is a .243 guy and used a 10 twist at the time .
Both of those bullets properly loaded are very accurate and terminal.

Soup,

In fairness,the 95gr NBT is Nuzzler's best boolit of All Time. That being said,their BC is schit,they are zookier and cost more than a 90 Skinner and less it's Accuracy/Precision. Hint.

IMR 4831 with 90gr Accubonds and Swift Scirocco IIs has always been accurate in my Rem 700 243.

3-shot groups consistently go 0.5”-0.6”.

Velocities run 3050-3100 fps for the 2 loads.

All yer days are 'kinda slow' Stumpy...

sorta gets that way, when you spend all day every day, half in the bag....pouring Jack Daniels in your cereal instead of milk...to start your day off "right".... hit the bong and then out to the mail box to see if another welfare check showed up, in one of your dozen or so "identities"..
check on the old marijuana grow.. then off to the shed/outhouse/bedroom/living room, to decide what you are going to do today, to congratulate yourself on how big an internet hero you are to the clueless... and wannabes....

just a little tip from the EPA.. when you take a dump today, don't forget to wipe this time... reduces Air Pollution in Alaska dramatically on PoW Island.

and while you are on line, ordering more stuff to make your rusty guns to go bang, think about logging into Costco and order yourself another pallet of T.P. and Soap....while you are on line... or have Hutch do it for you....

Rumor has it, your "place" ( aka dump) smells worse than the entire state of New Jersey....That is why PoW Island leads the nation in number of air freshener products sold per capita.

Aint' easy being Schtick...

Have a great day Stumpy... I'll send you one of my polished bed pans, so you won't drop one of your cereal bowls and break any more of them.
on Sunday, you can wear it as a hat... it'll keep your skin head chrome dome dry when it starts raining...

and remember.. Keep America Beautiful.... Take a friggin bath once in a while.. like when you are watering your dope plants.
