    95 gr Nosler BT and Varget powder.

    Has anyone used a combination 95 gr Nosler Ballistic tip and Varget powder in a .243?
    Thanks.

    Hello Basil. I'm using 35.2gn of Varget in Sako cases. Touching group at 100 yards, 2830 fps out of an R8 with a 1:10 twist 22 inch barrel. Exit hole on Roe is about 1.25 inches so very little meat damage unless you hit major bone. On my rifle, 0.5 inch high at 100 give a zero at 150, just right for me. Warning, don't start with this load, as always, work the load up from a lower level. Enjoy. Bubble

    I use 35.5g of varget behind an 87g bullet for 1:10 RH Twist .243, and they shoot .5 MOA, so the 95g shouldn't be far off that. Varget doesn't fill the cases completely, but more than 2/3rds so safe enough to use, even though traditionally not ideal for the .243. I'll be sticking to it as the .243 is complemented with a .308 where Varget is perfect for many loads, so I only ever need to buy one type of propellant and primer - Perfect
