Hey guys, I have found a very accurate handload for my 243. I am shooting a 100 gr Hornady BTSP pushed by 41 grs of IMR 4831. This is consistently giving my 3/4 inch to a little over an inch groups out of my Model 70 Featherweight. The 100 gr Rem Ultra Core Lokt is nearly identical with the same load.
I drew a buck antelope tag and the area I will be hunting is loaded with em. From all the yote hunting I do out there I know a few good areas to hit opening morning and as is standard with pronghorns the shots will prolly be in the 200 to 300 yard range.
I also have a 7mm Mag which is very accurate and I have reload dies for it as well. Would you stick with the 243 (I would really like to get my antelope with it) or in the event of a 350 plus shot on the buck of a lifetime (I know unlikely but always possible) would you feel better with 7 pushing a 150 gr bullet?
