I'm gonna start doing some serious load development for my son's .243 this winter.I plan on trying some Barnes,accubonds and partitions.I was never a huge partition fan just simply because I could usually get better accuracy with other bullets.I've used accubonds with good results in the .308 and 300 wsm so I don't want to discount them.I never killed anything with the triple shocks but did work up a very accurate load with them for a 25-06 taht I sold before I ever had a chance to hunt with it.Any real life experience with the 85 gr triple shocks?I have some IMR 3031 which I used this year and also have H4350 and IMR 4350.Barnes seems to like reloader 19 for use with that bullet so I'll probably grab some of that as well.I loaded the gun down this past year for my son but even the factory loads didn't bother him so I plan on pushing them a little hotter this year.
