Waiting for the phone to ring from the FFL, on our new .243......
I've already had orders arrive with the Redding Dies, box of Nosler Brass, couple hundred bullets from Hornady and Nosler, case holder for the trimmer, Nylon cleaning brushes, etc.
(Man, those Sinclair folks are Smokin' Fast on orders all the way to Kodiak...!!)
You get the picture, my tail's a waggin' in anticipation,
Heck, I couldn't even wait for custom Ogive measurements,
had to load up twenty last night, just to see what they look like. Hmmm
Except for a little RL-15 I had laying around,(only enough for 72 loads at 40 grains.)
I don't have any of the powders listed in Hornady, Nosler, Speer, Sierra, Barnes manuals, etc.
So, I thought I'd ask,
"What do you experienced .243 reloaders like best, for Powder in this caliber ?
I'm trying to stick with IMR 4350, H4831sc, RL-19, and 17 for my other rifle, .270wsm
can't really go wild on powder variety as it is closing in on $40/lb here locally
Expecting I'll gravitate to an IMR or RL something, maybe Varget (?)
It'll probably be .243 specific, looking for two types to start out with I guess
So if I get to traveling thru the city, without time ahead to test a bunch, what suggestions do you have for bulk purchase
on something I'll probably find success with, in the .243 manuals ?? Thanks
