Before my head explodes from reading bamboozling stuff on the interweb I would appreciate a bit of advice please. I collected my new moderator yesterday (CMM4 aluminium) for my .243 tikka t3 with a 1:10 twist.
Jackson Rifles have advised me that my usual bullets 100g federal may be unsuitable and cause poor grouping and that winchester bullets in a similar size would do likewise and as a result I am looking to switch to a smaller 80g bullet which I have been advised will stabilise better on exit.
The reason for this weight being I am only shooting roe and fox with the rifle and I have a 6.5x55 on my ticket for anything bigger that I can buy at a later date.
I don't reload (unless someone wants to sell me a kit) so am looking for factory loads. Whilst looking at manufacturers on the web and bullet types the array of types has got me in a serious muddle.
Deer shot will be processed and sold on so minimal meat damage is essential. What I need therefore is a factory bullet between 80 and 90g in weight, with a reasonably slow speed that will not fragment on impact.
I don't shoot at extreme distances as I much prefer stalking in as close as possible to deer or calling foxes in so I will not be shooting over 250 yards as I don't feel the need to.
Does this bullet exist? I dont mind paying a bit more for it if it does and I believe the likes of Norma and RWS are better?
If you are still awake, cheers for looking
