Thread: Factory rifles .243 that will stabilize 100gr plus, chronograph over 2450

    Factory rifles .243 that will stabilize 100gr plus, chronograph over 2450

    I have see a lot of debate on the subject Factory rifles .243 that will stabilize Factory 100gr plus ammo, chronograph over 2450ft/sec or 1750ft lbs

    If you have found you Factory 243 stabilizes Factory 100gr plus ammo, chronograph over 2450ft/sec

    Please just write Make, Model, barrel length and twist of rifle. Make Model of ammo.


    Sometime it is easyer to ask what will, rather than to debate all the specifications that won't.

    sako 75 hunter 20" barrel wood/blued 1:10 RH twist will shoot and stabilise both norma 100g SP factory and nosler partition 100g spitzers reloaded.

    haven't chrono'd them, but have shot big rutting hill stags with the norma SP's for a number of years out to 200yds and have had no complaints ;-)

    My Sako 85 shoots 100 grain RWS OK. 3 shot group 3/10" at 100 yards.

    lots of choice in 1-10 most will out shoot the driver, but get the best you can afford tikka is a good bet, sako's 85 is my choice in 308 now running a rpa .243 likes geco ammo and loves a home load

    hi tikka 243 RWS 100 GRAIN work for me

    Ruger #1, 24", 1:10" RWS, Norma Soft Point. Would also shoot quite well with Speer 105 grain reloads...

    You're asking the wrong question.

    I've never seen a .243 with the standard 10" twist that wouldn't group 100gr. All such ammo will make 2450fps - that's 500 below nominal.

    Now sit back and wait for the posts from those who have a lemon that won't achieve this. There's bound to be one or two about.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    All the newer savage 243's have a 9.5 twist, just a wee bit faster, will do 100gn no prob so I am told.
