Re: .243 load for my 10yr. daughter

Several years ago I handloaded some 243 Win cartridges for my cousins 12 year old daughter. I used Win. brass, Rem 9 1/2 primers, a Nosler 95 gr. Bal-Tip and a STARTING load of 32.0 gr of IMR 4064. This is NOT a reduced load it is a starting load. Muzzle Velocity about 2600 fps. The load was accurate and the recoil mild. BTW she killed her first Deer, a three point Buck that fall with this load. She downed him with one shot!
