I'm going to load some 100 grain Sierra Pro Hunters for my .243. It has a 26" bull barrel. What powder would Y'all recommend?

H4350 and H4831 are go to powders for that round and bullet weight. Hybrid 100V could be worth a try if looking for max velocity.

Don't overlook IMR4831, which falls halfway between H4350 and H4831 in burning rate. Over the years, it's risen to the top for my best loads with 100gr bullets in the .243 and 6mm Rem. It's no trick to get 3000 fps with MOA accuracy if the shooter and the rifle are up to it.

Come on Kmon1! Lol, you know H4350 is way down the list...lol...it's very hard to get so we don't need anyone else finding out what a great powder it it! cool so I go with H4831 and IMR 4831.

Sounds great. I have some IMR 4350 and some IMR 4831. Think I'll try the 4831 first. This particular gun is a real tack driver so it should work okay. If possible I'll save the 4350 for my .25-06 and .30-06.
