    Another dandy varmint load for you in .243.

    This is no secret load, it came from the Nosler manual, but it is a dandy. Nosler case, Rem 9 1/2, 55 gr Sierra Blitzking, 42 gr. Varget. My oldest (14) and I just got back from shooting ground squirrels, this load is more destructive than my .220 Swift with .50 gr. Hornady SPSX. Regarding the squirrels, to borrow a line from Peter Capstick..."it was a sight that not even a big city coroner would soon forget". Very humane dispatch on small varmints and excellent ricochet control. Rifle was our new Tikka T3 lite.
    Good shooting to you!

    You can't beat a T3. Glad it's working so well for you.

    Do you prefer it to the 220 Swift now?

    I'm not sure yet. I have only shot about 100 rounds from the .243, 100 gr and 55 gr bullets only. I think I will end up loving them both the same, just like I tell my kids.
