Use a 100 gr. game bullet. Other than that, check your loading manual.

I could give you my load but if you used it you would only be loading for my rifle. If you get 30 responses here no two will be the same because none of them will be from identical rifles.

I've had excellent luck with reloading for several rifles in .243/6mm with the Sierra 85 gr Gameking HPBT over a weighed charge of IMR 4064 and CCI br2 primers. While you'll have to work up the exact charge, that load has been proven on deer from several different rifles.

I personally prefer the Nosler Ballistic tip for a 243 win. It does a lot of tissue damage but puts the deer down.I have made good shots with other bullets and not had a lot of luck.

Stir twice and toss it on the fire!
