    There ain't one. No bullet flys flat to 300 that's deer legal, or is in a stupidly 'barrel burning' wildcat chambering (6.5-338 etc) An 80gr 243 is an 80gr 243.

    So you are looking for Nosler Ballistic tip 80grn .243 dia bullets.
    Are you asking who has these bullets in stock rob, or are you asking about a suitable load?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    As stated above won't be flat to 300, but hornady are bringing out SST in 75grn. They are reputed to have less bullet drop than most at that weight, I is the 95grn in my 243 and they are great on roe.

    Personally I would worry about learning to shoot properly at 100-150 yards before worrying about 300 yards. You did say:-

    The chap I have started shooting with
    which suggests your starting out in shooting.

    Now if your getting offered longer shots all the time then perhaps a 200 yard zero would help however personally I would be trying to get closer than 300 yards where ever possible.
