I'd love to be able to experiment with all those.100s will work fine for deer or anything else.
In my opinion, there are better performing and shooting rounds for a .243 for deer than 100 gr SP...
For my .243 deer rounds I shoot 77, 85, 88 grain HP solid coppers.
For coyotes I shoot 75 HP and 55 and 77gr HP solids
Woodchucks 58, 64, 70 and 90 gr...
I'd love to be able to experiment with all those.
Outfit on GunBroker still has 8 boxes available... they had 10 last night:The 85 gr tsx shoot excellent out of my Savage 11VT
This is great advice....the .243 winchester is a great overlooked round. About 10 years ago I started compiling info in a notebook even before I started reloaded. I searched the internet for reloading/load info on make and twist....bought powder and components and started with factory rounds first that shot the best....then fine tuned from them. From a 64 gr Berger BR shooting 5/8" out of my LAR8 .243 ...to 1/2" groups shooting an 88 gr solid copper Cutting Edge MTH out of one of my bolts.Learn to handload. Save your brass, start gathering gear, it's not that hard, the ammunition is better, and you can work up custom loads once you have the basics down.
I am willing to get gouged a little bit but 50 bucks a box?Outfit on GunBroker still has 8 boxes available... they had 10 last night:
