I just got a new barrel put on my 243 and I am looking for powder recommendations for shooting 90 grain bullets. I have used 7828 and 4350 in the past but I have not researched any new loads in over 10 years.

Thanks

Using a straight 243 but h1000 is a good choice. It'll extend your barrel life considerably with decent accuracy and SD's. Start at 46 and go to 49 or until you get too much crunch. It's doubtful you'll overpressure. At 47gr, 26"tube and 112gr match burner I'm around 3050
