What twist is your Savage barrel? All of the 243's we run and that I have built for others run a faster twist. 105-115gr bullets with H4350 or RL22 work pretty well. In my hybrid 243 (similar to a 243AI), we run 115 Dtacs and RL22 combo. Accuracy is well under 1/2moa and speeds are very fast.
Well, it has been so long since I did the first post I have forgetten. It is the standard barrel, and I remember I had to use under 100gr bullets becasue of the twist.

I have had excellent results with the Nosler 95 gn Ballistic Tip in my 6-284.

43.5 grains of IMR 4350
Remington 9 1/2 primer
Variable COAL depending on specific rifle
I have shot this load in three Remington M700 rifles, one Ruger M77 rifle and two Winchester M70 rifles over the years dating back to 1973. Barrel lengths have ranged from 20" to 24".
Every single one of the aforementioned rifles has produced 1" or less groups (some were 1/2") with this load. It is the only load in caliber .243 Winchester that has provided such consistent accuracy in so many different firearms for me.
