    Alright si I used H4350 for the nosler 90grain bts with fed210 gm primers 0.5 groups at 100m and the bullet perfomed well also had good results with h380.

    I've got a Lee classic loader for .243 on order and am hoping to have a go at loading 95g Noslers this weekend. Powder will be VIT n140 but not sure what primer. I'll let you know what happens. My Tikka likes that bullet in Federal factory ammo so fingers crossed.

    You should be fine with the H414 mate, I use it and (in my rifle) have found it gives excellent results.

    Hi Simon

    Having shortened the barrel by a chunk, it's worth jumping onto http://billstclair.com/energy.html to make sure you're deer legal - unless this is foxing rifle of course

    Cheers

    Thanks for that. I'll take those figures along when I go for my first loading lesson.
