which caliber would be better, I'm torn between the two. I have seen this topic posted plenty times before, but over 3/4 of the comments are a suggestion of different calibers, and then a debate between two or three calibers that people threw in the posts. I am buying a factory rifle because I can't afford a custom rifle at the moment, and these are the two caliber offered, so a suggestion of a different caliber is not an option. I live in ohio, which is a slug gun only state as far as deer go, so this will be strictly a varmint/recreational target shooting rifle. I know the 243 is capable of flatter trajectories, with the lighter bullets, but the 260 usually has a higher bc on the 100+ gr bullets. how does wind play with the two calibers with 75-87 gr in the 243, and 95gr in the 260. the 243 has the option of 58 gr. bullets for some real splatter power which is tempting, but I handload a 110 gr hp in 30-06 for that.
