I bought a 243 a couple of years ago and was planning to hunt with it during gun season. From what I have read, most bullets will work with good shot placement. My question is more about that marginal shot with a smaller caliber such as the 243. If you hit bone like a shoulder would a bullet like the Barns be a better choice because of its all copper construction. Secondly, most my shots are 30 yards or less and I don't like tracking wounded deer. Most of the gun season I use my muzzleloader because they drop quickly and I have confidence in my weapon. I would love to have a setup that gives me that kind of confidence with my 243. Lots here I know but would love some input.
