morning, the US Army was experimenting with the 243, in custom made 243's
with drop magazines bolt guns. their r custom made 105-107gr. bullets that were
studied for use in long range shooting. I personally have had 5 243's. the newest is a
243AI. 28" shilen, 721rem. timmey, straight contour barrel and custom tuned action
and1-14 barrel. with this twist I have to shoot light weight bullets. the 77gr. Lapua
Seneau (SP) bullets. I have not had chance to shoot further than 175yrds. 5 shots
.380in. the 243 with the heavest of bullets can be used for long range kills, but
by a experienced shooter.
