    Sierra 75 grain hollow point driven by Vit N140 or Alliant Reloder 15 does the job just fine.

    The 55 is a poor bullet choice for the 243, fast but ballistically inferior to the 22 cal bullet of the same weight.
    75g V-max is an excellent choice.

    A few differant reply, s lads I have read the 55, s not a great round so I, ll say to his 75 would be best idea as for powder
    Is varget not a hard one to get your hands on now I did see a few lads saying N140

    I use 70gr blitzkings over 39gr of vhit 133. They are doing 3340fps out of my 24" T3 varmint. Charlie don't like it anyway.
