    New VihtaVuori Reloading Guide (Edition 9)

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to give you the heads up that VihtaVuori have released a new 9th edition of their reloading guide.

    It's free and available online here:

    Remember, start low and work your way up, what was safe in their rifle may not be in yours!

    For 243 and 85/87 gr using Vit 160 it is a remarkable change from the previous manual.

    EG: 2008 manual Vit 160 87Gr start: 44.2 stop: 47.1

    And 2011 manual Vit 160 85 gr start: 37.3 stop: 43.8.

    And 2002 manual Vit 160 85gr start: 42.0 stop 46.6.

    I found the 2008 guide loads were too hot and used the 2002 manual which is similar to the 2011 manual.

    Well spotted, I guess it just reinforces the "reloaders rule" start low and work up!
