Forget the 243. What you are looking for is the 22-6mm Remington. Get a 27" bbl. You'll be pushing fast but stick to the accuracy department line of thinking. If you're bullets are going faster than 4000fps but you can't hit the target, then what's the point?
Plus, I can't think of ANYTHING wrong with THREE THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED FEET PER SECOND. Can you? You'll save case life, throat life and your accuracy may surprise you.
I love speed too but not at the sake of accuracy. That's why we have better designed bullets with high BCs. I'll take accuracy and known trajectory ANY DAY over velocity, period.
