I seem to find the noslers BT and 40.9 grains of IMR 4350 will group excellent 3 shot under a 1/2" but not all the time.I still think there a better powder out there I have tried IMR 4831 but the gun seem not to like it.
I here there are a few new powders on the block would like to here what you guys are using for outstanding groups?

I've had good results in a Model 700 heavy barrel varmint rig, with 75 grain V-Maxes in front of both Varget and H414. consistantly puts out under 1/2" groups if I do my part

When movin up to 95 grain pills, I like I4350, and I4064

My model SIX likes just about anything I feed it. Right now I use IMR4831 in it. IMR 4350 shoots about the same in that gun.

Every gun is different.

H4350 and 75 grain vmax shoot great in all 3 of my 243's (Rem 700 VLS, weatherby vanguard, and TC Encore pro hunter) IMR 4350 also worked well but the H4350 seemed to do a little better for me. Since it shot so well in all 3 I didn't really look for other powders to play with.

I suffer from the "Curse of the 243"....Never had one that shot a decent group below 1 1/2" while most folks get sub 1" groups out of their's.

38 grains of IMR 4350 powder behind a 95 grain Partition.

Maybe the 40. grains your using is just a bit much...I'm getting .67 groups at 100 yards with the IMR 4350 and the 38 grains of powder..

4064, 4350 hard to beat for lots of cals. As already said other powders out there. just now trying h-335 and h-380. sort of bad timeing to mess with loads and chuck hunting too. The h-335 in the 222 and 50 gr. v-max shot so sweet like 5 shots all touchin almost shockin, like they say right gun right load BAM... Oh yea 3031 good stuff too....later

Glad to see you still hang around HPA. I was wondering where you've been.
