    For fox and deer out of my border barelled 243 with a 1 in 8 twist I use 100gr Hornady interlocks with 49gr of N165. These group sub 1/2 moa at 100yrds and are very nearly as accurate as the 105 A-Max I use for the range.

    Lapua 243.

    Good question. I don't know is the short answer. The following url lists some options:***+9016+***

    I have had good results with Remington Core-Lokt factory 100gr ammo recently and I might be tempted to buy that bullet.

    Good luck. JCS

    I always use the Nosler 95gn Ballistic Tip with Rem 9 1/2 primer & 44.5gn Vit N160.
    My barrel is a 1-10 twist, so heavier bullets didn't work so well.....less than 100gn, perfect.

    I shot a 243AI for a few years with a Border Barrel 1 in 8 twist. I started with Hornady 87grn HPBT which were good but then went on to the Sierra 85grn HPBT Gamekings. First load attempt with H4350 would group at under 1/2'' at 100yds. They are a superb bullet for deer and foxes without excessive damage. may be worth a try and are generally an easy bullet to get a hold of.

    speer 85 grain or 87 grain hornady a 4350 powder deadly and very accurate drops them on the spot and very little meat damage.

    Speer 85 grain SPBT with either 38.5 grains of H Varget or 44.5 grains of Viht N160 at approx 3,100 fps have been very satisfactory for me. They are very consistent with only a maximum spread of only 27 and 37 fps respectively over the chrono for five-shots. Sako 75 .243 20 inch barrel T4 mod.
