Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this,
and maybe it's all cool, more time at the bench, but,...thought I'd ask anyway
Had a .243 stolen recently,
after spending the winter working up really nice loads for about 6 or 7 excellent hunting bullets
I'm going to buy another of the exact same rifle, so,
how much difference will there be expected in a factory rifle, built by Tikka,
the throat dimensions etc. (harmonics, whatever else distinguishes any rifle from another)
Do I have to, (or "Get To") rework all those loads, for the new rifle ??
can I take shortcuts, like just drop a grain below the old rifles powder number,
for say an 85 gr Partition, and save some powder and bullets, getting to a good load for this new rifle ??
