win 243

I tried to do a search so I wouldn't have to bother yall but no luck. I just traded a tika t3 270 for a pre 64 win mod 70 243. It has been lapped and steel bedded. His load is 40.5 grs of 4350 under the 95 gr nosler bal tip. It shoots almost one hole groups at 100 yds. I have not had the chance yet but plan in the next couple of weeks to shoot it at 150, 200, 300 and 400yds to see how much it drops.. Any comment on this rifle being a 400yd deer killer or not? Thank you in advance

Re: win 243

I shoot a similiar load in my 243 win, same bullet and powder. I consider mine a 400 yard deer gun, with good conditions. If you can place the bullet at 400 it will have enough velocity to make it work.

Shoot it over a chrony and run the numbers, you'll be fine.

You are going to end up with around 960 ft-lb of bullet energy. and inpact 26" low (6.25 moa ) with a 100yrd zero..
