My wifes pet load cant wait to see what it will do to a whitetail

100gr BTHP 31.0 grAA1680 2,717 fps2.7" Win LR guest
The bullet is Sierra 100 SPBT (#1560), but is also great with the 100 SPT (#1540). This load fills the case to approx 61% and gives 1 to 1.25 inch 3 shot groups @ 100 Yds.

Really good

100gr SP 45.0 grIMR 4350 3,140 fps2640" CCI LR guest
Rifle is Remington 788 with a 22 inch barrell.This load should be reduced 2 grains to start.Will shoot sub moa 3 shot groups in my 788 if I do my part.Brass used is winchester. Excellent whitetail load. Drops em in their tracks.Try the partition type bullets as they hold together best.They also don’t jell as much meat on impact.Some hunters think the .243 is a little to light for whitetais.I’ve taken enough whitetails to know it does work very well indeed.--Fred--

.957" @ 100yds Should work good on the deer in south Texas. Remington cases, trim to 2.020". Speer bullets, Savage 10 rifle, goning to try this load out this year

90 grn Swift scirocco 2 bullet. I trim the case .01" under max. I use Lee neck resizing dies and lee bullet seater. RCBS rock chucker press, RCBS trimmer and beam scale. Just the stuff that came with the kit years ago. I shoot this out of my Howa Thumbhole sporter. 22" barrel 1-10" twist. I have full floated the barrel myself and did a trigger job myself to get it to 2.5 lbs. This load holds 5 shot 0.5" groups at 150 yds. I have used this round to take 2 whitetails. The 1st at 52 yds. Broadside. hit behind shoulder. jellied the lungs and left a 1.25" hole going out. No real meat damage exept the meat very close to the wound. 2nd deer was at 183 yds same broadside shot, same placement. Lungs were jelly, only diffence was a 1" exit hole. Both deer took 1 full step, started to lose balance, then took 1 small steadying step, then fell over kicked and expired. Needless to say I’m happy!!

Used for over 22 years in Sako Forester with no problems or signs of over pressure. Now use H4831 Short cut with no apparent changes. Normally 8 loadings per brass prior to discard. Nosler 95 grain Partition very effective on whitetail and hogs. Also very accurate for 95 grain Ballistic Tip although I have not used this bukllet on game larger than turkey.
