    .243 speer 90g

    I have been reloading for about a year now,mostly for my 22 hornet, also loaded some very successful 58g vmax for foxing with the 243. I am now ready to try and load some rounds in the 243 for roe stalking.
    I have always used sako 90g gamehead factory ammunition for roe, I have just purchased some speer 90g deepcurl sp and would like to use h380 (as I already have a good stock of this).
    has anyone any experience of this bullet/powder combination ?

    many thanks

    Hi Thomas,
    I've not loaded that particular deep curl, but have loaded deep curls in 30 cal (shot well). Just thought I'd mention that Speer posted specific load data on their web site for the deep curl bullets and claim that load data may not interchange with other bullets (In my case, the deep curls behaved like other bullets) but I thought I'd mention the Speer caution.
    Here is the link from their web site specifically for the 90 grain BORON NITRIDE COATED deep curl bullet in the 243 win.
    http://www.speer-bullets.com/pdf/243..._90gr_1214.pdf

    Unfortunately, I've only used slightly slower powders in 243 (win 760, H4350, Ramshot Hunter, RL19, & some of the 4831s...all worked well with the 95-100 grain bullets I shot)

    I think Speer discontinued the deep curl, but the construction is basically the same as the projectiles used in the Federal Fusion ammo but without the boat tail and should serve well.
    Cheers
