Pulled this from the 4th jug today. Weighed 42.8. Pretty accurate little bullet in my boys 243 as well.

Not bad. Looks like it maintained just under half weight, and expanded real well. Four jugs for a small, light bullet expanding that well is about right.

He took a deer with that didn't he?

Nah, he took his deer so far with the 100 PT. Hard to back away from the 100 PT. It makes the 243 seem a little bigger than it is..

I have taken a couple with the 100PT and 95BT and find the 243 just stacks them.

In the 4th jug is solid deer performance in my opinion, especially when you consider the brutal impact velocity. Thanks for sharing

Looks good to me, 4 jugs is pretty good from that bullet and the speed its traveling....

Yeah the little 243 puts the Smack down On'em No Doubt!
I just loaded up 50 of the 70gr NBT's today. I hope to get out and put a hurtin on some Woodchucks soon!
I love the fact that my 100gr PT's shoot to same POI as my 70gr BT's do...

243 is a Death Ray! IMHO. :biggrin:

Yeah that 90AB is a good one. I'll use it in the future when I can.

Death Ray is correct, you should try the 55gr NBT's on groundhogs...+/- 4" to 425 yards
