Pull Straight up

Velocities did perk up shooting comparatively slow-burning
propellants such as W760 and Big
Game. Nosler 70-gr. Ballistic Tips
reached 3450 f.p.s. with 45.0 grs.
of Big Game and Hornady 75-gr.
V-Max bullets 3386 f.p.s. with
45.5 grs. of W760.
Heavier bullets reach their highest speeds with even slower-burning propellants. IMR 4350 is always a
good choice in the .243 paired with
90- to 100-gr. bullets. From a 22"
barrel 41.0 grs. of IMR 4350 propels
100-gr. bullets about 2900 f.p.s.,
always with admirable accuracy.
Velocity is consistent, too. Extreme
spread of velocity was 8 f.p.s. over
five shots with Hornady 95-gr. SST
bullets and 41.0 grs. of IMR 4350.
A friend calls IMR 4350 "old guy's
powder" because it has been on
market for more than 70 years
and performs so well in a variety
of cartridges. Other propellants
suitable for heavy bullets include
Reloder 19 and 22, IMR 7828 Super
Short Cut, N560 and even H1000.
How fast these propellants push
bullets depends on the bullet.
Nosler 100-gr. Partitions had a
muzzle velocity of 2923 f.p.s. from
45.5 grs. of IMR 7828 SSC fired
from my Cooper .243. A halfgrain less of the propellant shot
Sierra 100-gr. Spitzer Boat Tails
at a velocity of 2840 f.p.s. The
Sierra bullets varied only 26 f.p.s.
through 10 shots.
That's a perfect muzzle velocity
to expand the Sierra bullet, with its
exposed lead tip and thin copperalloy jacket, out to several hundred
yards against the ribs tight behind
a deer's shoulder. Hunters young or
old can make that killing shot if they
practice first with their .243 Win.
