    .243 nosler 55g BT

    any of you guys shot .243 with 55g nosler varmint BT for fox/rabbit/crows/parking attendants/etc?

    just curious if I load it up with max Varget to around 4000fps what sort of max point blank range I can expect before having to worry about holdover of any significant sort.

    I've used them a lot in the past over max load of h4895, gives 3950 fps from my r93 22.75" barrel. A 200y zero is about .5" high at 100 and about 5-6" low at 300y. Classic example of a load you shouldn't set 1" high at 100 and go hunting- you won't be on target at 200 with that setting. I now prefer 70gn as a 200y zero is about 1" high at 100 and 6" low at 300. The 70gn at 3400 sits nicely on the tds reticle bars at 100y intervals at the 200y zer0 setting. The 70 will also kill deer where the 55 just bounces off. Try some 55's, they don't half shift!!
