    243 win load data for 80 speer deep curl bullet and imr4831 powder

    This bullet has a Boron Nitide coating and has been tested by Nosler with only 4 powders. Unfortunately (for me) IMR4831 is not one of the powders tested. The powders tested are RE17,IMR4350,WIN760 and Varget. I am looking for Min/Max load data for this bullet and IMR4831. A bonus would an actual load recipe that has worked well when using this bullet and powder. Thanks to all in advance.

    Hmmm... Maybe you'll get lucky and someone here will use that powder/bullet combination. If not, I guess you'll have to give Speer a call and get their take on it. Based on the data in my Lyman book, there isn't exactly much difference between their published loads for an 80 gr. bullet (Speer #1211) and the Speer loads off their website for this "special" bullet. In both 760 and 4350 the starting load is within a half grain and the max loads are pretty similar as well, with the 4350 actually showing a couple extra grains over the Lyman manual.

    Sorry I can't help you with it... I load 100 gr. .243's with 4831 though and I like the combo.

    I appreciate the response. I had called speer prior to the post and they wouldnt comment much saying they had only tested the above referenced powders. I do have some H4350 and I suppose I will start with that at around the minimum for IMR4350. As always I'll then work up from there.

    Hodgdons lists an 85 grain bullet for 4831 with 38.3-42.6 as min/max, but no 80 grain bullets. That should help give you a starting point to work with.

    I don't have a .243, but I do have 3 loading manuals. The Lee manual has no entries for 4831 with an 80 gr bullet.

    For an 80 gr jacketed bullet, Hornady shows 41.8 gr of 4831 @ 3000 ft/sec, up to 43.3 gr @3100, OAL 2.640"

    Lyman has 42.0 gr @ 3059, up to 47.0 @ 3406, OAL 2.655"
