I picked up a box of hornady 100 grain american whitetail ( interlock) and getting .5 inch groups at 100 yds... I'm trying to find some of the all copper 80 grain TTSX and if they shoot good it will most likely be my deer load

I handload. 100 grain Partitions out west. Stepped down to 95 partitions when I moved to Tennessee. Going to try 90 Accubonds this coming year. I am gettin close to 2850 FPS with the 95's. The cheapo Barska scope stopped moving the zero after about 30 rounds (50?) and is now locked on zero.

I reload everything I own. For the .243 I use Hornady 100 gr. B.T.S.P's.
Very accurate in my rifle [T/C Encore] and great terminal performance.

I handload a 100 gr Nosler Partition. If my .243 likes the 85 gr Barnes TSX or 80 gr TTSX, that would be my load. in Factory ammo, I like those bullets, and the 95 gr Fusion.
