    Yes 243win 7.5tw 29" Broughton with 115s (ole or new) with either 40.02gr of Hybrid 100v or 45.02 of RL25.

    3030 for Hybrid 100v
    3080 for RL 25

    These are in a long throated rifle setup specifically for the DTACs. An Ackley Version happens to be this Summers project, hope for 3150+.

    I got first pressure signs at 3400fps with 105rdf bullet 48gr RL26 in a standard 243 30" 7 twist tube 47gr yields 3300+Or -
    I'm having accuracy issues but there are a lot of things otherwise that can cause it

    Just found an awesome varmint load:

    243 win lapua brass
    65 gr vmax
    2.605 oal ( -.020 in mine)
    Rem 9.5
    Imr 4166

    Low node at 42.5 grains

    5 shot velocity
    3610,3612,3610,3609,3611
    Single hole accuracy

    High node at 44.0 grains

    5 shot velocity
    3771,3769,3770,3770,3776
    Single hole accuracy

    So far imr 4166 has been a winner for me in lightweights.

    Try your load with 210m primers. I have a feeling it will make the groups much smaller.
