3.Berger Target Bullets 243 Caliber, 6mm (243 Diameter) 115 Grain VLD Hollow Point Boat Tail
100 grain bullet is near the upper limit of bullet weight for good stabilization with a spire pointed bullet with average rate of twist 1-10. Hunting bullets from Speer, Hornady, Nosler, and others work well to deer sized game. The bullets such as the Sierra 107 grain are long and require a fast rate of twist.
biggest 243 I heard of is Hornady 107 gr, A-max. Its a match bullet
You can get 105gr for the 243 I have used them in mine but just stuck with the 100gr Partion you wont see a big differance between the 105 and the 100gr.
Back in 87, ran into a fella on the range with hand loaded 243 with 125 grain round nose and the ballistics was crap!
I wouldn't go over 100, my 22-250 even on Mule deer works fantastic, go figure!
As one Fella put it, all you need is something to let the air out and broadheads do just that!
