Is 243 ammo best for deer hunting?
The majority of hunters who target deer use something other than standard full metal jacket .243 ammo. Hunters often turn to Hornady’s Super Shock Tip or Speer’s Grand Slam expanding bullets, which cause deeper and more severe wounds.
For hunting whitetail deer, Federal 243 Fusion ammo is also an excellent choice. The 95-grain Fusion soft point bullets travel nearly 3,000 feet per second, ensuring excellent penetration, resulting in a clean kill with its Fusion soft point bullets.
Performance of 243 ammo
Performance-wise, the .243 Winchester closely matches the 6mm Creedmoor but the .243 Win has more bullet and casing options, as well as more factory loadings and firearm options available.The .243 Win also has slightly more powder room, while the 6mm Creedmoor is usually loaded to slightly higher pressures
With very little recoil, even less than that of the .30-30 Winchester cartridge introduced sixty years earlier, the .243 brought higher chamber pressures, larger powder volumes, and sharply tipped bullets, which all combine to lend the .243 more muzzle energy and far greater downrange energy than the .30-30 is able to achieve.The .243 Winchester has also been found to shoot flatter and more accurately than the 7mm-08 Remington out to 500 yards, with less recoil yet also less terminal energy.
