    .243 58gr vmax and N140

    Is anyone else using Hornady 58gr heads with N140, whats your preferred power charge in your setups.

    I'm about to try some, using TR140 rather than N140

    N140 worked very well for me with the 58gr V-Max. 44.0 gr is Hornady's max load in their 7th edition reloading manual.

    Anyone using these heads with N140, what loads suits your setup.

    I got better results with H4895 in my 243 with that bullet after trying n140.

    the reason people will be loathe to give you their exact loads are that in the first instance what works in one rifle may not in another in terms of accuracy and secondly that a top end load ( such as mine) might be dangerous in your rifle.

    The data is there, start low, work up and post your results back here.

    it's all part of the fun!
