Thread: Reloading .243 for Deer

    Reloading .243 for Deer

    I have been using a variety of .243 100gr rounds for deer and am planning on reloading in future. I would like your suggestions on the best bullet for the job; I am guessing somewhere between 85 and 100 grains will do.

    Once I have decided on that, I can select which powder to use and work up a suitable load

    Before anyone suggests it, I already have most of the kit, a Lee manual and an experienced reloader to assist/mentor (he just doesn't use the same calibre).

    Thanks in advance for your help.
