    Lapua Reloading Information

    Hi All - I have just been looking at the Lapua Reloading data page for .243 Winchester
    I notice that they claim that they are using a 22 inch barrel with a 1 in 10 inch twist for their data ( with one exception)
    They are using a range of bullet weights and publish powder amounts for each type of bullet as expected
    My limited experience in reloading has already shown me that not all of those range of bullets will work well using the same barrel twist so I am wondering have I missed something here?
    Any suggestions anyone

    Yes, each barrel has an individual performance, reloading data is a guide but trial and error should lead to the load that performs best in your rifle. atb Tim

    But to be fair they make no claims on accuracy
    they are testing pressure and load vs MV

    that said 100gr worked fine I my 1:10

    I have a box of 105 grain 'A-Max' - do you think they are worth a try in my 1 in 10 twist rifle?

    I have a Blaser R8 in .243, the greatest accuracy is with 90- 95 grain bullets and optimum velocity with the 90 grain. atb Tim
