Re: 243 for long range hunting
After reading your posting I want back to my Load From A Disk program and looked at the 105 gr. Berger slowed it down to 3000 fps and the twist section indicated that a 1:8 would stabilize it as well as the 115/ 117 gr. Bullets at 3500 fps. That would provide a varmint load in the 105 grainer out to 550 yds. and a deer and antelope load out to 1,000 yds. with the 115/117 grain bullets. This would also put the 105 grainer in the low recoil range for the times when my wife shoots it. Synergism at work here.
Thanks for the ideas.
