Re: .243 Win for deer?
Rem, you need to work up loads for just a few more bullets and then sell me that gun! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I bought a Rem 788 .243 carbine (18.5 inch barrel) a couple of years ago and have fallen in love with the caliber, at least for casual paper punching. I nicknamed the gun The Flamethrower for obvious reasons and she's more than held her own at a couple of balloon/egg shoots here in the state. The long-barrel .223 shooters just grin and shake their heads when they see me setting up.
