    Flat shooting .243 ammo for fox and small deer

    Give the new Hornady 75 grain SST's a go. I find them very flat and superb for fox, however I still favour the Geco 105 grain for anything bigger than Muntjac.

    I use 55Hr Winchester Silvertips in my 243. Very fast, very flat and super accurate in my 243.

    +1 on the SST. I shoot both the 75 and 95 grain as they both shoot under 1 moa and to the same poa so no need to change zero between them.

    Winchester bst's are fast and flat, just the ticket for charlie..... no good for deer though!

    For the last 5 years I have used a 85 grain Sierra Gameking for Fox ,Roe and Muntjack , can't fault them.

    75 gn Remington Accu tips for foxes and their 95 gn version for deer....
    Shot a few foxes with the 95 whilst waiting for Muntjac but it tends to travel through them, unlike the 75 which will exit but a hole the size of your fist....
    No real difference in where they go, I zero at 200 and they both are quite close off the sticks..

    85gr BTHP does just fine on both.
