    Nef 243

    I bought a little NEF SB2 Youth Model in 243 for next to nothing. I tried 6 different bullets with IMR 4350. The first 5 were 2-3'' 3-shot groups @ 100yds. I was gettin' a little discouraged until the 6th, a 95 Nosler Bal Tip. 3 of 'em went into 0.67". Keep tryin' different bullet/ powder combos and I bet you'll eventually find something that shoots well!

    My 2 older sons started deer hunting with a NEF single shot .243. We used Winchester 100g Power Points and they shot great out of that little gun.

    What this country needs is a department of common sense! The tree of liberty would be a great place for hang mans ropes!

    Sage advice for any firearm, whether you shoot factory loads or roll your own.
