    advise pls

    Hi guys need some advise please

    im going back to using soft points in my 243 and 308 after trying allsorts ive settled on using

    100 grain hornady btsp in my 243

    and

    150 grain hornady btsp in my 308

    i want to use the same powder ,if i can in both, i have plenty of vit 150 left over

    In my limited experience, a good load results from the collision of a number of factors:

    Your rifle and scope
    Your brass preparation
    Your reloading technique
    Your choice of brass and bullet
    Your choice of powder
    Your load testing method

    I would suggest that to maximise your chances of getting good loads for both rifles, that you don't constrain yourself to one powder. Try the best three powders that you can find readily.

    Good luck. JCS

    Davey, the best powder I ever found in "MY" .243 Sako, was Benchmark

    What does your loading manual say for Vit 150?? How aboit Vit's website?? Take some initiative and find some data. Minimum OAL is a good place to start.... or the length of your magazine. We could give you our pet loads but there is no guarantee they would be accurate not safe in your rifle. Start from minimum and work up. It's fun. You'll enjoy it.~Muir

    vit website only lists using vit150 with a 100 grain speer grand slam bullet, not a hornady 100 grain btsp i will just follow that data.
