I primarily hunt with a .243 for deer. It's the rifle my dad bought me and my brother to start hunting with. My brother always had great luck with it and was somehow able to drop deer quick and a few times even in their tracks. Me on the other hand, I've pulled that off once and the deer still took a couple minutes to die. I want some opinions on what .243 bullets have given you the best performance over the years. I have tried Hornady 100 gr sp which is what worked well for my brother. I've also tried their 95 gr SST's which at close range blew a hole out the other side, and Barnes 85 gr tsx which took me 3 reasonably well placed shots to finally kill the deer. I've thought about just using my dad's .270 but I can't seem to get the accuracy I want out of it even though I can fairly consistently hit a 6 inch gong at 300 yds with it. Maybe I'm blaming the bullet for improper shot placement. Any idea's?
