This one is a little off from every one else's opinions but me and Bill Bailey have had great luck with the standard 243 win. In his savage 12bvss we can get 3140fps with 105gr a-max. Brass is cheap and the gun is easy to load for. I do think that this load is pretty fast for a standard 243 win but this gun will also shoot a 55gr bt a little over 4200fps. We have use this gun accuratly out to 1070yds and on your skinny deer I am sure it would have good killing power for quite a ways out there. BJ is hoping to get some Wildcat 6mm bullets before to long, we will have to see how they do.

It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!! ---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
sorry if im being alittle agrivating, but i really think with a longer barrel and using bullets on the heavier end of the 6mm spectrum, this cartridge will really shine. please dont take offense, but i think im gonna go ahead and try this one. if it doesnt work out we will all know that you were right, and im not afraid to admit when im wrong, im still a kid you know? and you gotta learn as you go.
best wishes and good luck shooting
im glad to see there is another standard .243 fan around here! i already own one and i must say i enjoy it greatly! i shoot 55gr noslers with 52gr of H380, 70gr noslers with 47gr of H414, and 100gr Sierras with 42.5 gr of H4350, and it shoots them all extremely well, i couldnt be more please with this round. i guess im just looking for more now...we'll see how things turn out.
thanks for the input
looks like you have a great shooting .240! the only reason im not interested in the .240 is i dont want a belted case or the limitation of brass manufacturers that this round has. the .240 was what got me wanting more in the first place and i think it is a great round.
thanks for the group pic, very impressive!
