    243 load help

    Hi Guys

    Just wondering if anybody could help me with a load data for a 243 load using below.

    i want to try and use N150 as i use that to load my 308 (will save me buying anymore powder).

    got some nosler 95grain ballistic tips.

    have brass and cci primers.

    Just not sure of OAL to use or grains of powder etc etc.

    Many thanks
    ATB

    Hi There

    JCS's suggestion is a good one. You could also try going to the Sako website (www.sako.fi) and then going to the cartridges section and downloading the data table. I would provide the actual link but where I'm writing this from won't let me access it. The data table actually provides the charge that the Sako branded cartridges are loaded with and they all use VHT powders. Clearly getting hold of a the VHT manual would be a better option, but maybe this would start you on your way and let you know if Sako actually use 150 in .243. Perhaps some kind reader with quickload (other reloading software is available lol) may be able to offer further refinement.

    Good luck
