Thread: What Varget load for .243"

    What Varget load for .243"

    I wasn't able to buy my usual Hodgdon 4350 so bought a tub of Varget instead. I've had a look around the forum and have a couple of loads to try but wondered if anyone had any specific loads for 95gn Sierra Match Kings?

    Also I'm assuming that different bullet types of the same weight - all 95gn - will give different pressures. This is what I am nervous of... hence my specific enquiry for the SMK.

    Thanks

    How about Hodgdon.com? They will have loading data.~Muir

    The hodgdon site is the best and free. Just use the load data for the same weight bullet as you plan to use.

    Hi Biffa,

    Sorry I have no experience with match kings. I use 95 gn Nosler ballistic tips with 34.5 gn of Varget. It is the most accurate load out of my .243 ZKK 601 BRNO and is very good out of my friends Sako 75. It is an excellent Roe round for clean kills and minimal meat loss.

    Matchkings are a great target bullet, but have a read of this article and think twice about using them on live quarry VLDs and varmints
