i've just set my .243 prohunter up for foxing, zeroed using 55gn silvertips, which are extremenly accurate and deer legal in terms of energy/velocity/calibre, although not really designed for deer. a chance munty taken at 20m had no exit wound!
my dealer only stocks these at 55gn, the moves up to 80gn federal and winchester which are still "varmint" rounds. i havent shot deer with the 80gn's, alhough they do the job on charlie ok.
what is the lightest, .243 "deer" factory round available, does anybody know?
