Default Load for 100 grain bullet in Savage Edge .243

I just bought a Savage Edge in .243. I want to shoot 100 grain bullets for Texas White Tails. Has anyone worked up a good combination load for this rifle? Interested in primer, powder (type and grains), and bullet.

Default Primers and Powder?

What primer and powder do you use with your 85 grains?
I was thinking a heavier bullet for whitetails (100 grains).
The Edge has a 1 in 9.25 twist that should stabilize the larger bullets.

41.5 gr H4350 with either 100g Sierra or 100gr Hornady Interlock shoot very well for me.

I've been shooting Barnes 70gr X bullets and 85gr TSX ,but I've changed that to the Barnes 80 gr TTSX and find it very accurate with good penetration . I'm loading 44 gr of R19 with the 80 gr bullet
