    Why is it that I do not see many posts on the 243 WSSM? I am looking for my next toy and looking at the 6mm Remington AI or 243AI. Is the 243 WSSM worth considering? I am looking for a 400 - 600 yard coyote gun. Does anyone here have any first hand information on this caliber?

    I looked at that round and decieded that I could push a 243 Win at over 4000 fps, and the brass was cheaper. Also the rifles are a lot more common. Not enough for me to buy the 243 WSSM over the proven 243 Win.

    I have seen mixed reports, more not so good than good so far.
