    If your pockets are deep then Winchester 95gr silvertips,
    Remington accutips 95gr also v good /,federal vital shock worked well in my .243 as did Norma .
    Best to try out a load of different ammuntion to see which best suits your setup. Brough

    Nosler 90 grain BT spitzers for me.

    Federal vital shock 80 grain works for me
    But has been said before try a few diffrent rounds out and see which one suits you.

    .243 Bullets


    Factory ammo I have been using Federal Vital Shok 95 grain excellent bullet.

    Home load which I have just started and getting good results with Nosler Ballistic tips, in Federal brass, CCi primer and 35.4 grains IMR4895.

    Hope this helps.

    When I used factory ammo it was sako 90grn gameheads
    been reloading for a while now and use either
    87grn hornady s/p over 36.6 of vit140 in lapua brass with cci primers
    90grn nosler b/t over 42g of H414 in lapua brass with cci primers
    both are pinpoint accurate in my 19" sako finnlight.
    These loads are worked up for my rifle.

    Good old Sierra Gameking 100grn homeload, 44.5grns N160, cci std primer.
    They don't go very far when hit with these.

    I will use nothing but 100gran Norma in my Sauer. But I have the same model rifle in 30-06 and it seems to perfer Federals.
