Hi appreciate some advice on the following.
I'm about to start reloading for the 1st time. I mainly use my .243 Browning A bolt for foxing. One of the permissions I have is on a golf course in a semi urban area so I have been using factory load Winchester 55g silver tip or Hornady 58g Vmax (my thinking is they break up nice on a strike and they are less likely to ricochet if I miss). I have also used 100g for deer but nothing in between these grains. Based on the fact that when I paper punch I think I get slightly better grouping on the 55g Winchester. Therefore my first purchase was going to be 55g bullet heads either in Sierra or Nosler but I also have option of 58g vmax as well. I was wondering what other people have found when reloading in these bullet sizes from factory loads. I was also thinking of slowing the loads down if possible or would that cause instability and am I missing the point of using such size of bullets?(I was also thinking of using Hodgdon H4895 powder). I'm also aware that I do not know how I /gun groups bullets around the 70g and would heavier bullet be better??
