    I have a 243 win with a 1-10 twist and was wondering what would be the best bullet for deer for long range?

    any of the 90 grain to 100 grain bullets will do it. the bullet that shoots the best groups at that range is best. how far have you shot your .243 so far?? some that come to mind : 95 berger and balistic tip; 100 grain, horn sierra or nosler.

    I had it out to 500 shooting jugs with the 70 nosler ballistic tip. I tried the 105 amax but they don't stabalize and don't 95 mergers call for the 1-9 also?

    95 btip probably best bet, or an accubond if they have it in that wt or close.

    When I had a 243 built for a friend, I had the smith put a 1-9 twist PacNor on it for the bigger bullets and it worked really well

    I will try the 95 Noslers then cause I didn't want to get a new barrel yet cause this one only has 35 rounds threw it
