looking for 243 load data

B*gbear said: I am looking for some load data for a 243 win 8 twist barrel. I am having a custom 243 win built. planning on shooting 95gr or 105gr bergers VLDS or 105gr A-max if I can find any. so if anyone has any good loads with these bullets that would be great

Br*cecounty said: try hodgdons website they will have powder charges listed for those weights of bullets , maybe not the exact brand which dose not matter because typically you load to bullet weight not bullet name. you may have a hard time making the 105 grain bullets group well in a 8 twist barrel typically you want a 10 twist barrel or higher for anything over 100 grains to group well.

B*gbear said: I am loading for specific bullets. that would be why I built a gun designed to shoot target bullets. and that is why I used a 8 twist barrel. so thanks for the input but next time. you should know what you are talking about before you give your 2 cents

I think you have it reversed. A longer/heavier bullet needs a faster twist. 1 in 8 is faster than 1 in 10. A quick place to check on twist requirements is the Berger site. They list minimum twist for each bullet.
