We will be using a Winchester model 70 243 topped with a Vortex 4-16x42 shooting Winchester power max 100 grain hollow point. I used this gun when I was a kid and so has all my boys.

My son saved up and bought a.243 this summer. He is pretty excited to shoot something with it. The gun shop only sold us ammunition because we were buying a gun. Crazy times. Tikka t3 with 100 grain core-lokts.

Both of my kids are too old although my daughter never hunted but my bonus son wants to go and this will be his first ever deer hunt. Can’t go until Sunday but will be toting my TC Encore .243. Good luck to all the kiddos!

Glad I saw a 25-06 on here. It is one of my.favorite rounds. When I do go back home and rifle hunt I alternate between my 25-06 and .300 win mag. 25-06 is a low recoil, flat shooting and has plenty of power. I do like the 120 over 100 grain bullets though.

.243 would be the choice if I was taking a youngster. we have a youth savage model and we love it. my kids are all grown.
and if i had a youngster, i know where we'd be going. getting great trail cam pics this week.

100s we’re not my first choice. I just haven’t found any eldx for it in over a year. If these nbt don’t hold up I’ll go to a scirocco
