Hodgdon's website has data for this powder/cartridge but not this exact bullet. I would use the starting data for the next heavier bullet (90gr) and approach max loads with extreme caution as the Barnes bullets have different characteristics that "may" cause unusual pressure spikes.

243 Winc
Hi ICEBOX I bought a new savage 243 & all of the reloading s--t with it to add to my other calibers, I have been checking on line for loading data for the 243 I suggust that you to go on to check out different loading data for the 243 as I did , also buy the hornady reloading catalog that comes out on the news stands annualy, good luck with it, its a great caliber for Deer & coyotes, that why I bought mine for coyotes, Iv'e been using my 22/250 for years but wanted to try a change:cool:

From looking at hodgdons data 41.0 gr would be my low with 43.0 my top. So start low and work up.

Not a very wide load range with that powder in that cartridge. This too is not an extreme powder so it will be more susceptible to temperature changes than the extreme line.
