    Load Recomendations 243

    I'm wondering if anyone else is using 85gr Interbonds in .243 with Hogdgen H4350.

    Typically this is the one bullet that isnt listed in the Hornaday Manual.....

    My current loading is 42Gr H4350 which im sure is pretty close to max load.

    I've just checked my load data and whilst it doesn't state 85 Interbonds it does give an 85gn bullet and using your powder the charge is 42 min 45.5 max, giving a min speed of 2967fps and max load a speed of 3215fps
    My favourite .243 load is an 87gn bullet with H380 x 40gns pushing it and using a federal mag primer.

    Thanks EMcC, Ill have a little play around with the Chrono and see whats what. Theres certainly no evidence of overpressure at 43 so i reckon there is probably still come wiggle room.

    My only concern is that the 87grn bullet Hndy lists has a max load of 43.4gr
