Working up a load for Xbolt 243

Just been out and bought myself a new Xbolt in .243 now I need to get a load sorted for it.
Anyone reload for one that can put me onto the projectiles they like and save me going through a multitude of sampler packs.

Try a pack of commercial Fiocchi 95g, and see how they shoot.

They use a 95g SST projectile, and chronograph to pretty much exactly the same as my handload, which is the same 95g SST in front of 35g of AR2208.

The ADI data says this runs at 2996fps, which is about what I get through my Tikka.

In my rifle, it is VERY accurate.

Good luck!
