A lot of folks don't like ballistic tips but for my .243 it the Winchester Ballistic Silvertip 95gr. Unbelievable internal damage, most are bang/flop dead and my rifle shoots 1 ragged hole at the range.


This is what I load in my sons.... three bucks the last years and none of them ran more than 20 yards.

That's the factory ammo I've been having my daughter shoot in her .243. As far as factory ammo, its very accurate imo. She hasn't taken a shot at a deer yet, so I can't vouch for terminal performance, yet. It's super easy to find, and is relatively cheap to hunt or practice with.

Core-Lokts are bad medicine on deer. I have shot several deer with them and everyone has dropped in its tracks. You may get better accuracy with some other bullets but you won't make any cleaner kills. They don't call them, "the deadliest mushroom in the woods" for nothing.

95-grain Fusions hands down for me. My son and I both shoot them. Brother in law shoots them in his .270 as well. If they don't fall on the spot or in eye site they leave one heckuva blood trail.
