I only have one concern about the sst. I've shot a couple coyotes the bullets didn't exit on. I may switch to the AB.
I've never heard of 243 issues. What kind of issues? I'd appreciate a heads up. I'm happy with mine. But, I'm not you.
Sometimes they exit and sometimes they don't. When they don't, they are usually just stuck on the hide on the far side.
I don't care much if my bullets pass through or don't just as long as they cause massive internal damage on their way.
243's seem to be hard to keep in tune. Something about the internal combustion plumes caused by shape of case and powder to bore ratios. ONe day they shoot ok, the next, not so good in my experience.
I'm a firm believer in matching case capacity to bullet size and weight to get optimal powder performance and the 243 and 6x.284 are way past 6mm size.
Kind of like dropping a supercharged 393 stroker motor in a Chevy Aveo. Sure goes fast but it's hard to keep it going straight down the strip!
