    reloading 243 with ramshot tac

    Hi im wanting to reload for my 243 but the powder I got is ramshot tac and im using 80 grn sierras and I cant find any info for using tac anywhere but do any of you guys know how much powder is needed and over all lenght is if any body knows.
    Cheers

    That's because there is no load data for that powder on ramshots listings, because it's not the right powder for a .243,
    Big game, or hunter is what you need. Tac is too fast a powder

    Yeah I now its to fast of powder I got it for my 223 but never used it because I use vit n133 for my 223, unless that for the 243 if thats any good to use

    Nope. Too fast too. N140 is about the fastest to use in a 243.

    hi if you ramshot hunter and 80 grain.start load42.9 and max load47.7.that comes from romshot load guide edition 4.5

    you need to be looking at the case fill ratios when using "fast for cartridge" powders

    they are not ideal

    I been looking at the ramshot manual and they dont say anything about using tac for 243 it says on the box that it good for 223 and 308 for heavy bullets but 243 is in the middle , but I been told that vit n133 works fine for 243 so I might be giving that ago the weekend
    Cheers guys

    I tired n140 in .243 with 75gv-max heads but didn't get very good results, have swaped to ramshot hunter and with the first test load its already grouping better then what I could get with n140

    I use n133 in my t3 varmint in .243.
    70 gr blitztking over 39gr of n133. They are doing 3340fps. This has been worked up and is at the top end for n133.

    This is is ok in my rifle but not necessarily ok in yours.

    RS Hunter is the powder for .243. I use it with Sierra 70gr and 100gr bullets and it is very good indeed.
