Thread: 100 gr 243 for Howa?

    100 gr 243 for Howa?

    Can anyone recommend a factory 100 grain bullet that shoots well in a 243 Howa 1500 sporter? Thinking of using mine on the does/hinds over the winter.

    Federal Powershok 100gr worked well in my .243, due to difficulties with getting it I now reload........

    rws t-mantel was good in my .243 (not a howa though) the federal stuff was cheaper but didnt group quite as tightly.

    100g for HOWA

    I have recently bought a 1500 HOWA and I have been using Privi with decent results, then tried Hornady Interlock 100gr BTSP and I'm very pleased - much better with initial groupings under 1" and where I want them.

    Just put the first batch of 100gr home loads through at the weekend and I still need to work on them to replicate the Hornady results.

    Thanks for the feed back folks. Tony C, does your Howa have the 22 or 24 inch barrel and do you use it with a moderator?

    I've got the 22 inch barrel and I use a Ase Ultra Jet Z Compact moderator which makes it a compact unit (I have an old Tasco Titan 3x9x42 mounted on low mounts).
    I have been pleasantly suprised with the HOWA even though in my opinion it is a budget weapon and I bought it as a bit of a lightweight back up for my Mannlicher 25-06.
