    I used 38.6 grains of Viht 140 with a Sierra 85 grain BTHP Gameking bullet. Very accurate but according to manual near maximum load.

    This is from the 1986 Vihtavouri Manual:

    243 WINCHESTER
    90grain SAKO SP112E - N140 - 36.0grains = 2950fps at 3600 BAR PRESSURE

    100grain SAKO SP113E - N140 - 35.0grains = 2690fps at 3600 BAR PRESSURE

    Note that ANY CHANGE in ANY COMPONENT WILL AFFECT BOTH PRESSURE AND SAFETY OF ANY LOAD

    Havn't used N140 with the Speers but 37.5gr worked well for me with Hornady 87gr BTHP.
