.243 & .308 projectile choices?
I would like to start by saying that if there is a similar thread on here, somewhere, I appoligise. I am looking into starting to re-load for the two calibres listed above and would like some suggestions on what you guys consider to be the quality projectiles out there.
First rifle is a stock standard Remington 700 in .243Win. I will be using this rifle for Chital (Axis) and Fallow deer, shots will be limited to 200 to 300 metres to start with.
Second rifle is a Sportco (Omark) target rifle. It is a single shot .308 rifle that we use down here to shoot in a match that involves ranges from 200 to 1000 metres. Heavy, solid action with a very heavy barrel. My idea with this rifle is taking feral pigs on grain paddocks from a vehicle. I would like to limit my shots with this one out to 500 metres until I gain confidence in going further. I will be using powders manufactured in Australia so I just need a heads up on what projectiles I should start looking at?
Ok, thats me. Bring on the wisdom and knowledge.
