Thread: Mannlicher Classic .243 ammunition

    Mannlicher Classic .243 ammunition

    Just wondering what ammunition other people have found this rifle likes? I use Lapua and they work fine but it would be interesting to know what other ammunition Mannlichers like.

    TIA

    100grn RWS has always worked good in mine.

    Norma ,all three I've owned liked it !

    243,6.5 and 308

    There you go just to show how different rifles can be a friend and my .243's could just group on a diner plate with Norma, but better with Rem, Fed and best with RWS so that was where we stuck. So get a couple of boxes of different makes and find out what is best in yours. Cheers

    RWS 100 Grn T mantel soft point and the 'totally and completely different' Geco 105 grn - both perform brilliantly in several Mannlichers we've had/ seen.

    Thanks for the info. Lapua are fine I just wanted to know what other options there are.

    I truly wonder if the fact that each and every barrel can be different will ever sink in by the looks of it there is no fear of it happening any time soon .

    BH technically very true and worthwhile highlighting

    Constructively put within context?

    Whilst different I would hope rifles of the same model are similar.

    I am not interested in bench rest shooting, I am merely asking what other people find works in the same rifle.

    I now have some options if I ever decide to change from Lapua, which work fine.

    Winchester 100gr are very poor grouping.
    Geco105gr acceptable as long as your chest shooting from a solid rest.
    Fed 100gr reasonable grouping and give me CONFIDENCE.
    Fed 80gr accurate.

    So I tend to use Fed 100gr mostly in my Styer Pro Hunter but thats just my rifle.
