Thread: reloading 243 win with N160.

  1. #1

    reloading 243 win with N160.

    Making my first steps into reloading using a friends reloading equipment. This man is a basic reloader. He isn't experimenting with seating depts or whatever.
    Just bought a sale of bullets.

    Hornady 75 gr spire HP n2420
    Hornady 87 BTHP n 2442
    Speer 90 gr Spitzer n1217

    I want to use them to train on the range. The speer might make a deer load. Anybody loading data with these combinations?

    Is there a website on wich you can find safe loading data for most bullets?

    I think you can not just copy a load for a 87 grain Siera bullet for a 87 Hornady ?

    I used N160 exclusively in .243 from 75gr up to 100gr
    When using data for a lighter bullet start LOWER



    mine was a roe specific load so I am fairly sure I was using the lower accuracy node

    87gr Hornady BY Interlocks - 43.6gr
    100gr Hornady Interlocks - 38.2gr

    Would it be safe to use :
    - the starting load for the 85 grain partition as a start for the 87 BTHP ( or slightly lower)
    - the starting load 90gr FMJ sirra as starting load for the Speer 90gr spitzer

    1) no, start lower. Ideally take a median between the 85 and 90gr starting loads
    2) no reason why not

    I haven't tried the bullet weights you mention,simply because i cant get them in my local gun shop,but I'm using n160 with my 100gr and it seems to work well so far.
    Norman clark have a very good reloading book calibre specific with a load of different bullet weights and powder for 6
