Just finishing up a little project and I'm starting to load up some rounds. I'm wondering if anyone has a load thats working well for them using the 100 gr Berger HPBT in a .243. I'll be launching them from a 28" 8 twist. Thank you for any help you can give me!

hmm guess not lol
Well maybe you can give some general ideas on where to go with this stuff.
So far I've loaded a few with some with the powders I have on hand, RL19,RL22,H4831 and just for fun despite its poor case density Varget (I've been surprised before) I loaded them all to right around the same velocity, about 200 FPS below book max, using data from the latest Sierra manual for their 100 gr SPBT.
I’ve also picked a few loads of the main page's .243 link. Of course I’ll do my full OCW stuff later on, this is mostly just to get shooting the first day I can, just want to have a little fun and will get down to business later. Primers are BR2’s, brass is Lapua. Any good recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

The 100 Berger BT's are pretty new so you probably won't get much response. I bought the first shipment PVI received and part of the next.
I was trying them in an 8 twist 6mmBR. Went through two boxes and wasn't impressed. They weren't as accurate in my rifle as the 108 BT's. And neither of those two is as accurate as the 90 BT, at least in my rifles. I shoot the 90's out of a 243 and with 43.9 grains of H-4831SC they zip right along and are very accurate - 0.5 MOA out of a 6 pound factory rifle and 0.2 MOA out of a 9 twist Krieger HV barrel.
