bullet weight

what's a good bullet weight for the encore pistol 243 win.
1-10 twist factory ammo. mostly for whitetail deer range 200 yard max but closer to 100 yard's

    Same as with that chambering in a rifle at those ranges, any bullet made for deer size game in the 80 to 100 gr range will work fine as long as they shoot well in your handgun.
