if your going to shooting deer with the same bullet you shoot the chucks i would try the federal 85 gr TSX they shoot good out of my encore 8 twist and good out of my remmy VLS factory tube but so does the cheap cabela's 100 gr spbt bulk ammo . i wouldn't use a varmint bullet on a deer

I have a standard taper Savage .243 with a 1:9.25 twist. I don't use factory ammo, but it does very well with anything from a 55 grain to a 100 grain bullet. I agree with npd, if you're looking for a single load for woodchucks to whitetails, go with an 85 or 87 grain bullet, but I don't think you need a premium bullet to do the job.

Sierra 85 gr Game king

I shoot a lot with my 243 in South Africa and have dropped animals from rock rabbit size (smaller than domestic cat) up to Fallow Deer using the 85 SGK. It is a potent little bullet but I am not sure who loads it - you can look at federal premium or sellier and bellot! It would be better to load your own - Mine run at 3300 fps and have not let me down yet.
