Try looking on gunbot.net or ammoseek.com. They list alot of different ammo. Maybe you'll find what your looking for.

Winchester 100 grain power points have racked up A LOT of deer for me and everyone in our group that runs the .243.

Unable to find the ones I like as well. 95 g win. Silver ballistic tips. not cheap, but they drop a deer like no other.

Re: 243 ammo

Welcome to our new reality until everyone stops panicking over 223 and 9mm. Want a really hard one to find try looking up 35rem.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.

Or 7mm-08, .300 Savage is near impossible to find and priced to the point of lunacy now too.

Federal Fusion 95 gr. My 788 really likes them. I just haven't tried them on deer yet.
