    Factory Round for .243 Tikka T3

    Hopefully picking up my first .243 this week. Its a Tikka T3 hunter.
    Id welcome any suggestion on a suitable factory round for Roe deer?

    Mine loves 95grn hornady sst (superformance).
    groups really well and kills deer up to fallow size no problem (never shot reds with it).

    Try a few out and see what's best
    My Tikka T3 .243 is the varmint version and loves 100 grain Norma. I now home load 100 grain Sierra pro hunter Spitzers and it's even better, but a mates Tikka T3 hunter won't shoot anything over 85 grain with consistent results?
    So best bet is try a selection and find the one that works best for you

    I'm using Sako 70gr Arrowhead SoftPoint in my left hand version of your rifle. Excellent results .

    I always found Sako 90gr SP worked very well in mine....The brass reloaded very nicely after as well.

    +1 i shot a lot of deer with those bullets in a T3 when I had it and found them excellent. They also shot 1" lower at 100m in mine than federal premium 55gr ballistic tips did for foxing.

    .243 SS Lite and it like Sako 100gr, but they're getting harder and harder to find, hence me looking to reload.
