Re: .243 advice
Every Time this subject comes up, does NOT matter if it is the 243, 30-06, 30-30 7mm ECT...
I always Answer.....
What you shoot the BEST thru your Rifle after Testing Different Loads!
As for my personal use in my 243 for Deer, I use either the Federal 70 grain Ballistic Tips or the Hornady 95 grain SST....They both knock the Snot out of Deer and either drop them in their tracks or they only go 25-50 yards! (And they leave blood trails a Blind Man could follow)
The BEST thing for you to do is Get yourself a few different Brands of ammo and work them at the Range and sellect the BEST 2 that shoot the Best and also Read up on Each you choose on how they have performed on Deer!
