    What .243 round for long range target shooting???

    Evening guys,

    Ive been invited to a day on a long distance shooting range, I usually shoot 100gr Remington core lokt for game etc.

    I was just wondering what people recommend for a day on the ranges???

    targets will be presented between 100m & 1700m

    ​All advice welcome

    Many thanks

    If the twist is fast enough, use 105 A-Max. If it isn't a 90gr or 95 gr Berger Match bullet would be an option.

    How do your 100gr core lokts shoot? Why not stick with those if it's only one day, lot of time and expense involved in working up a load
    with another bullet just for one day?

    Daft answer this one as we all know that expanding ammunition may ONLY be used for zeroing on ranges and not target shooting! A really stupid bit of knee jerk reaction this law but we are stuck with it and must stay within the law.

    Only Politicians, the police and criminals it seems are exempt from this!

    Use your normal ammo, zero all day long. Is it WMS?

    I doubt even the dumbest FEO or licensing officer would swallow that one is zeroing to shooting quarry at 1700 yards. They would certainly have grounds to question this activity. As we know for sure at least one Police licensing department looks at these forums i often wonder why some "members" offer the advice to lie about their activities?

    ​It does make one wonder about their suitability to hold a FAC does it not their willingness to lie about what they are up to.
