I have a .243 WSSM in a Winchester Stealth. It likes the 95 grain Berger, good. I head shot a coyote at 626 yards. The longest shot before that was a head shot doe at 602 yards. I will shoot out this barrel and have it rebarreled to .243 WSSM, again.

    ok, question 2..

    that upper with the shillen is 950

    i can get a DPMS ar10 243 for 1000..

    what would be better?... would a 243bbl last longer then a 243wssm?

    accuracy differences?

    any thing else?
