    I've been reloading 100 gr Spear and Sierra boat tail soft points. They have been accurate out to 300 meters.

    Being a fairly new member I just seen this. Most accurate load I’ve come up with is the Nosler 95 from. Ballistic tips. I’d have to look at powder I went with but I’m sure it was most accurate load tested in my nosler book

    I have a 243 finnwolf that shoots 1” groups at 300 yards. It has been my favorite hunting rifle for 46 years. Get the 95 gr Berger classic hunter and set the length to 2.75 oal to just fit the clip and work up a load using hodgden H 4831sc powder , cci br2 primer, and Norma cases. My best load was well over max listed in hodgden manual but I worked up in 1/2 gr steps and checked for pressure signs. When I was several grains over the listed max my bullets stared making one ragged hole so I stopped but I never saw any pressure .The longer seating depth allows for more powder with less pressure and higher velocity. I’m looking to buy a new magneto speed chronograph and check the speed but I haven’t got it yet.
