Re: What bullet for 1-9 1/8" 243 Win?
So I am on your wagon now! I Have a Rem sps 243 that will get some shiny new everything over the next few years! I Started this project in hopes of having a low recoil rifle that will project a highly slippery bullet at a fairly fast velocity.
I really am a fan of the 25-06 but it is in the process of turning into a 6.5-06, for the Slicker bullets!
So my new wolf killer/ coyote gun is a 243 sps!
I have started out with the 105 Amax and the first three shots of the break-in process made a 3/4 inch group in the wind! Now I have her shooting around 3000fps 1/2 MOA and I love her!
I will be trying the Sierra 95 SMK soon.
I can fit 5 rounds in the mag of my sps 25-06, and only seem to be able to fit 4 in the new 243? hmm I like 5!
Ya gotta be tough when yer dumb!
