    .243 75 grn V max suggested powder and loads

    All,

    I need to load up some of the above, I have Varget, N140, BL C2 H4895. I would like to use a powder other than Varget as its so difficult to obtain and need to conserve stock if I can. Going to be used in a Howa 1500 heavy varmit.

    Thanks

    I am using Ramshot Hunter with 75/87 grain HDY bullets and 90 grain Speer bullets on advice from my gunshop owner. Easy to find and reasonable priced. Best of all : Its made in Belgium.

    I have recently developed a load for a chap using 75 gr V Max in a 243 RPA rifle it shot .572" at 200 yds but as you don't want to use Varget You will not want to consider 41.5 gr of Varget seated 40 thou back using Fed Gold primers and Remington cases.

    I must say if the Varget did not perform as expected, I was going to move onto H414
