you already have patience...youll be sucessful and have a lot of fun with that rifle. find what shoots most accurate in that rifle. bullet placement is more important than bullet weight.

Re: .243 for Whitetail

Good choice, the 243 is a good deer rifle for her. I`ve been involved with numerous big bucks and big hogs shot with this caliber . And the guys and gals used 100gr Remington Core-lokt factory ammo also.Re-loading will give you some pretty outstanding choices for the 243 as well. Good luck and its always extra sweet when the wife is a part of all this for sure. Gary

My last buck just fell over, bang-flop. The .243 exit wound was about 2" in diameter. He didn't even try to get up. This was with the cheapest Federal factory ammo. 100gr. I have faith in my .243, even on a bigger animal.
