I just got my .243 barrel that I sent of for from the combo I bought. I just sent the form off a little over aweek ago. I'm impressed. I was just wondering if anyone has an Elite with the .243 barrel and what factory loads it likes. Guess I need to start looking for a new scope too. I wasn't expectig it this quick. It should be a fun little gun.
Just because one factory barrel performs well with any cewrtain load is no sign the next one will, even if the barrels are "identical". But I'd try the Remington 100-grain Corelokt load to begin with. That is, if you are using the rifle for deer hunting.
If you are seeking ultimate accuracy, such as for varmint hunting, see if you can find a factory load that features the Sierra 85-grain HPBT bullet.
