Does anyone have experience of long range hunting/shooting with the factory Remington barrels in 243 Win? (I suppose there are lots in here that do). I am waiting for a Rem 700 SPS Varmint 243 Win with the 1-9 1/8" twist and 26" barrel. What hunting bullet would you suggest which should also serve as an allround "long range" bullet and also for hunting? I will mostly use this rifle for short to medium range (200-600 meters) but I'll shoot it occasionally at 750 meters also. The biggest game animal will be roe deer which weigh about 55 lbs on the hoof, i.e. no need for any super tough bullet here. It would also be very good if the bullet is reasonably "cheap" in order to practice with it. Hence, the Swift Scirocco etc. are out of the question. I thought I'd start with the Hornady V-Max 87 as this has a decent bc and very good price. It should also open at extended ranges. With a muzzle velocity of about 3300 fps it should also be quite flat shooting.
