Proud to have a 243 if you can't tell by the smile. Get the 85 grain Federal Premium Hollow point bullets and teach them to shoot high in the front shoulder and your work is done. The only deer she did not drop where it was standing she had a mosquito go up her nose and she pulled the shot and made a double lung shot @ 160 yards the deer ran 20 yards and left a trail that Ray Charles could have followed. The exit wound was probably close to 2" diameter. Stop knocking the 243 it is not the gun it is the choice of bullets and the person on the end of it.
