Re: So whats wrong with the .243 on Deer?
im only 26 years old but ive been lucky enough to kill more deer in my life then people 10-15 years older than me. i have used recurves, compounds, muzzle loadrers, .223, .243, .270, 30-30 30-06 7mm 12 ga slug and many more. I do know one thing if you hit a deer in the vitals it is going to die. a 243 is an awesome deer sized round. all these people claiming their deer has never taken over a couple steps with large caliber rifles i would ask how many deer they have honestly shot. deer can run and run with a perfect placed shot no matter the caliber. unless you take out his legs, back, neck, or head chances are he is going to run a little bit. i have double lunged or heart shot most of my deer and they almost always run more then a couple of steps regardless of what they are shot with.
.243 = AWESOME DEER CALIBER
