Re: Anyone use Speer 100 grain BTSP in .243

No I have not tried Speer 100 BTSP. I shoot a 6mm Rem with Hornady 100 BTSP & have shoot my 2 smallest groups 7/8 inch at 300 yds yes 300 yds nice groups. I will say I have only done this twice Remington 700 BDL 6mm factory barrel,made about 1974. Scope Steel tube 3x9 40mm Weaver 35 year old scope, It has been glass bedded, & trigger lighten. In reality for 3 shot groups it averages 2.1 inch groups on average when shooting at 300 yds. Look up on Hornadys web site .243 100gr BTSP has a picture of a Mule Deer I shot a couple years ago.

Savage Model 10 .243 Win. 1:9.25 twist. Looking for a deer bullet to 300 yards and groundhog bullet to 500. Not liking my groups with Win 780 :-(

The .243 can be a great long range round. i won my first 1000 yard match with a .243 . for accuracy i always try varget and I4064 first. for more velocity i try I/H-4350. lapua brass and br-2 or 210m . .030 off the lands.
