    .243 75g sst

    Hi i have been told to use 75gr hornady sst for fox and muntjac. Is this ok?

    I've never gone lighter than 85 grain in the .243. Even then the fast expanding polymer tipped bullets have a tendency to make a lot of mess. I've also used SSTs in 6.5, 270 and .30 cal. They are a good bullet but can be pretty explosive. The balance between speed and expansion seems to differ between calibers for the SST. See ballisticstudies.com.

    Try them and see!
