  1. Ballistics - Internal and External
    I recently bought a Winchester Model 70 SA 243win, "coyote" with a 24" stainless bull barrel with a 1-in-10" twist. If anybody reloads for a similar rifle in 243 with a 1in10" barrel twist, and has a deadly combination for accuracy and/or precision at 100yrds and would like to share please...
  2. Handloading Procedures/Practices
    I recently bought a box of Herter's .243 ammo at Cabellas. The idea was to shoot them and then reload. I do this with other brands on a regular basis. They shot fine but where I went to reload them I found the brass had lengthen quite a bit and I had to really open up the primer pockets...

  6. Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Been looking for a rifle for my niece, the Howas weren't even on my radar, but I looked at a couple of them at a gun shop the other day. I really liked how it looked, felt, and shouldered, and the price was pretty good, too :-). Trigger seemed pretty decent, but that can and probably will...

    Does anyone have knowledge with the Rem. 700 VTR in .243 Win. ? How is the accuracy? Another concern of mine is the 22" barrel with muzzle brake seems that it might fall short in the velosity department.
