    I don't know about best all round, but my pet load for MY rifle for what i intend to use my .243 on is 42.5 gr IMR4831 under a 90gr Nosler bt, federal match primer, lapua brass lovingly prepared, seated 30 thou off the lands. This may not safe in YOUR rifle so work up a load carefully.

    A bit pointless question really far to little information.
    factory or reload 55grn to 105grn and that's just a start.

    HI Threlfall,

    Best .243 load.....Now therein lies the question! Fox? Deer? Big deer? Little deer?

    What do you want it to do?

    My "pet" loads in the Devils Own Boomstick (Blaser R93) are:-

    RL17 41.5gr behind a Nos 90gr E-Tip 2.65 COAL
    RL19 44.5gr behind a Nos 90gr BT
    HSuperform 47.5gr behind a 85gr Sierra Gameking
    RL19 45gr behind a 85gr Sierra Gameking
    RL22 47.5gr behind a Nos 95gr BT


    AS ALWAYS....THESE ARE LOADS IN MY RIFLE!! Start low and work up!!


    Factory Federal 80gr soft point & Lapua 100gr soft point also work very well!

    Sako 75 243 with standard SS barrell

    40g of Vargent and a 75grain Nozler balistic tip is a stunning load for my Sako. The 150 to 200m grouping is far far better than my 100g Power Shok soft points

    Still got a load of factory 100g soft ponts so havent developed a load for them yet

    87g hornady bthp ...#42 in front of 35.5g varget at 2.7" coal
    85g partitions in front of 35g varget at 2.7" coal

    again, may not suit or be safe in your rifle
