    Can't help you too much with loads for the 243 Winchester. I have used it a little in my 243, but my rifle gave better accuracy with IMR 4350.
    I have used a lot of VV 160 in my 6mm AI. It is very clean burning and has given excellent accuracy and velocity.
    Hope this helps a little,
    Gary

    +1 to what Gary said.
    I used to compete @ 1,000 with a 6SLR and V-V 160 powder. It is a very cool powder and if the conditions are right, I tend to shoot fast for a sling shooter. When it's time to clean all I would ever get is a few patches of grey and it was clean. BTW, I was, and still am shooting 105 gr. JLK's. When a better bullet comes along, I want a bunch of them.
    I hope this helps,
    Lloyd

    Thanks for the heads up guys. I think I've tried almost every powder known to man in my 243's, but always seem to drift back to IMR4350 ... because it just plain works. I've been hearing some very good things about VVN160, so I wanted to check it out. Thanks again, Ben

    Ben -

    Howdy !

    The new IMR4451 might also be worth a look.

    IMHO -
    Surplus " D85 " ball powder acts like " ball 4350 ".


    With regards,

    I use Vhitavouri N160 in my 6mm Remington with 105 gr Hornady match. Getting three inch groups at 600 yards just resting on top of a bag. This is the first load I threw together. Anxious to get out to sight in at 1000.

    Same here with the 6AI, I tried several other powders and the N160 was clearly the best, and very fast barrel cleanup also.

    My son always used H414 in the 243AI he had a couple of years ago. He got really good velocity and accuracy from it but I don't remember the load.

    The VV N160 has been used for decades in Scandinavia. In the old customized Krag matchrifles in 6.5x55 N160 low pressure loads was/is renowned for clean burning and exellent barrellife. A typical load was a 140/144gr bullet in front of N160 at 2400fps out of a 30" barrel would give 6 - 8000 rounds barrellife.

    Re: Vhita Vouri N160 UPDATE

    Finally got out to the long range again. With the Vhitavouri N160 in my Ruger #1 in 6mm Remington with 105 gr Hornady match bullet, I obtained a 5 1/2" three shot group at 900 yards. The lull in the wind only lasted for the three shots.

    Hi, I have a Ruger no 1 in 6mm. What was your n160 load? I am going to try berger 105 gr. I know to work up to loads safely etc
    Thank you!

    I have had good results with N-160 and berger 105 hybrids in my Ruger Precision. 26" 1:7.7, lapua brass and BR2 primers. 43.5 gr gets around 3100 fps with 3-4" groups at 600. 95 gr. tipped Sierras like 47-48 gr of n-165, but that's a compressed load.
