Your right on I have used the Partition in my .243, when l hunted the Yolla Bolly's in Northern California for Black Tails...............Never had one walk away. They are not as big as your Missouri Whitetails , a good buck will dress out at 135-140 But you are right its a great bullet in the .243

    I may be hunting in area 21 of Idaho next month..........................I was very impressed with the Barnes TSX Tipped 80gr on antelope last week that I just might try them on Deer .....................I hope that by the end of this month I will have my .243 AI back, its getting a face lift, new Pac Nor barrel, Jewell Trigger and having a new McMillian stock pillar beded................keeping my fingers crossed. I would like to shoot the 90gr Sciroccos or the Speer 100gr Grand Slam's. The SST are on my list as a Deer Bullet............................also. So many choices To bad I could not get four or five deer tags each year.

    My favourite rifle is my Sako .243
    I use a Speer 100grain with 40.4 grains of reloader 19.
    Works a treat and i have taken everything from rabbits to big red deer stags.

    Cheers

    Did you use the Speer 100gr Grand Slam?? Has anyone used the 90gr Scirooco?
