Re: What is an 22 243

The 87 V-Max in 6mm has a BC of .400 and the 95 VLD is .529. Any 6mm worth it's salt (read 6mm Rem. here) will shoot either of those bullets faster than a .22-243 will shoot an 80 grainer. It'll hit harder and doesn't require any fooling around with brass. It's also a legal deer/pronghorn rifle in any state... the .22s are not. I shot a .22-250 and Swift for years... but I'm a firm believer that the 6mm's have the .22 centerfires covered in spades... with the single exception of volume varmint shooting. ~JT

    but you could make a 22-250 from a 308 case if you wanted to. i had a book a few years ago that was all about the relationship of cartridges. if i can find it or remember it, ill post it here.

    i shoot a 22-243 with 80 gr bergers @ 3500fps, chrony @ 100yrds gives a bc of .610 i have a 243 that i shoot 95gr bergers out of and in my opinion it kicks the crap out of it. it does twice the damage of the 243 on game and metal plates.
