    Anyone use N160 for 243 85g Gamekings?

    Hi. I have some N160 to use up and was wondering if anyone has had experience of using this behind 85g HPBT Gamekings? I have used N160 in the past for 80g Berger Target bullets and found it really accurate.

    another voye for Vit 160 I have used it for years in my 243 again form 68 gr bullets to 87,very clean powder which also produces very good FPS,just take a look on the Vit website for load data

    Welsh Guy stick with the VV160 and the Berger's. You don't need much more than a pinch of powder to acheive 3,200fps in your rifle!!!!!!

    LoL. Only problem is I need a deer round 8x57 or should I say 9.3 x 74?

    I'm fed up of bringing my 9.3 to the range for you to have a look at, you never turn up!

    Just as well you'd only dribble all over it!!!!!!

    Looked out my loading log and found the load for 85grners were 43.5 of N160 CCI Large rifle primers, seated 10thou off the lands =1/2 to 3/4inch groups at 100yds.
    like i said before, load em up and have fun.
