    reloading 243

    Hi all I have recently started reloading for my 243 and am wanting to try different loads, I got a box of 100g containing 100 bullets,
    But to try different loads I have to buy boxes of 100. In different weights as I haven't seen smaller amounts, this seams daft as I may only use 10 to 20 of each weight so I can find the one that suits my needs and be left with a lot of kit I don't need its a shame the manufacturer wouldn't make a box with a selection of weights for this purpose, I'm shur others have had the same problem ,maybe this is something you have discussed before and is old hat to you guys ,but its all new to me . thanks Colin jamison

    I'm having the same issue.

    I think I will agree on a particular head and just try to develop that one. If it doesn't work, move on to the next one. You can check the potential ballistic properties of the said round using ballistic calculators..

    Suck it and see!

    I'm surprised a few gunshops specialising in reloading don't break up a few boxes into "reloading bundles", say 20 of each in a given weight but different brands and then sell them at slightly more than a standard box of 100. May not be enough demand but I would have thought there would be enough people interested to trial it.

    I had the same calibre & problem which was solved by David Muir (? on here as muir) google DMC cartridges.
    He loaded up 5 different bullets & loads to try in my new rifle, 24 inch barrel with 1 : 8 twist, 100 &105 grainers different loads.
    Nosler partition 100 grain was best but then I needed a bullet comparator and 243 insert as the tips do vary in length by 7 thou.

    One of the site members tried something similar to this only a short time back but the idea didn't really take off. I suppose if it was possible to post expanding bullets through the mail then the idea may have really flown.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
