In my experience a 243 kills a lot faster than a .50mz loader and just as fast as a .308, 30-06, 7-08, .270, and every other rifle I’ve hunted with. I’ve never felt the need to tote a big bore, perhaps I’m missing out?

I shoot nosler bal tips and partitions... 95-100 gr. DEAD.....
I've seen some pretty gnarly wounds with the 87 gr Vmax as well. My rifle also likes these, so I believe a test is in order.


You gonna pull them pistols, or whistle Dixie?

You’re not missing out. I’ve killed plenty of deer with a .243 (a couple hundred) and they all bled and died just like ones shot with a super duper mega magnum .400 special purpose grenade launcher.

.243 is plenty sufficient for AL whitetails from shooters of all ages, even men who wrestle and play football.

I like 243 BECAUSE I played football and tore my shoulder up. I like the soft recoil.
