I am looking for some help / reassurance on the lighter bullets for Deer for 243. Im have been getting 5 shot groups using my hand loaded 80gr Bergers that are ½ at 100 (I will ignore the cold bore shot as that opens it up to almost a full 1).
So I think that my 1 in 10 SSG-69 would like a similar weight bullet for deer. The ones Im considering are:-
Barnes TTSX 80gr
Hornady GMX 80gr
Nostler Ballistic Tip 90gr
Nostler E-Tip 90gr
Sierra GameKing 85gr HPBT
Does anyone have any experience of the terminal performance on Deer for these rounds in 243 Win? My intended prey will be Roe or Muntjac with a possibility of Fallow at some point and will be taken at 50 - 150 mtrs.
Accuracy is down to me and I know shot placement is key but if I put it where its needed how do these rounds perform, are there any to avoid for short to medium distance? Or should look to load 100 grains and stay away from sub 100's?
Thanks from a green horn
