I'm looking at powders for my new 243 (Brno Mauser 98, 22" 1:10). Viht N160 comes highly recommended in the Hornady book, but is only listed for 87gr and less. It's funny cos they list 4350 and 4831 for 95-100 and n160 sits between them in burning rate.
So has anyone had any success with N160 with heavier bullets, and if so what were your good loads. Or N160 for 243 in general.
My other thoughts were IMR4831 - trying to find something that will handle 95-100, 87 and 80gr in that order. I know "what powder for my 243" is a can of worms, but any small pointers would be appreciated. I think I've ruled out 4350 (things I've read) and 4064 (too fast for heavies).
