    Vihtavuori powders, wich one for the 243 ?

    I will start reloading for the 243. I will buy Norma " Jaktmatch" ammo for the range and use these cases as a basis to start reloading. What is the diffrence between the Vihtavuori N100 and N500 series? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both ?

    +1 on the N160, 45 grains behind a 100grn sierra gameking will do the business nicely.

    In all calibres I am a "heavy bullet for calibre" man. So I will probably shoot 100 grains on game and 95/105 grains for target work ( no competition). I see shooting at the range as a practice for better shooting on game.
    On deer I would like to try 100 grain Nosler Partitions, 100 grain Gamekings or even 85 grain Barnes TTSX. For the range I think about the heavier matchkings. N160 was my first idea, but than I discovered the 540/500/560 in the reloading data. My shooting pal also uses N160.
