Does anybody else here use .243 for varmints/coyotes?
I live in a place where shots are long, and the mountains create wind conditions that are hard to dope out.
My gun likes Nosler 70 grain solid-base bullets. They seem to carry and buck the wind fairly well. - They group well too.
There is no occasion for rapid or high volume of fire here, so I'm hoping that my barrel will hold out OK.
I know that the .22s are most popular for smaller critters, specifically the 22-250, .223 and the 220 swift.
Anybody else here shoot .243 Winchester at varmints, instead?
