Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Round! Bought a new Remington 700adl in .243 a few months ago and after trying several brands and weights, I found that my rifle prefers and performs much better with the Federal Power-Shok 100grn softpoint. Very accurate and consistant at 110 yards. Just a sweet straight hard hitting reliable round. Won't use anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Ammo and Excellent Price Stop blaming ammo for a poorly placed shot or equipment malfunction. This ammo is well loaded for factory ammo and extremely accurate (in the right hands). I shoot Hornady SST ($40) box in 7mm and this ammo is just as accurate!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bullet. I've used federal 100 gr. For about 8yrs in my weatherby vanguard with a good rest I can shoot hole for hole at 100 yrds. The farthest I've tracked a deer was 50 yrds because of me not the bullet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive results (accuracy & terminal effect) I mentor youth hunts. This is my go-to caliber and ammo for 80% of my kids' hunts for deer and pronghorn. It never ceases to amaze me how effective this ammo is on game. As long as the shooter puts a shot where they're supposed to, literally every game animal I've seen shot with this ammo literally falls over. Not even one step. Wow. And -- 3/4" groups at 100 yards, wow! My handloads can't even do that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best group of my life with this round - .243 Tikka T3 I've read reviews of good accuracy with this round. Two days ago I took out my new Tikka T3 chambered in .243 with a Vortex Crossfire II 4-12X scope for initial sight-in preparing for a hunt. I fired four groups of this 100gr ammunition at 100 yards. The largest 3-round group measured 1.05 MOA. The smallest measured .245 MOA, measuring center-to-center. I've attached an image of this group. That's the best group I've ever shot, in my life. Now I'll be testing it on game in October.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very accurate and consistent round I've tried many brands in my Sako 85 Hunter and at 100m this is the only one that delivers sub MOA. I now use this for hunting around NSW Australia very effectively.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Ammo! I have used this ammo since I started hunting. I use 100 grains soft point for my .243 savage and the deer do not go very far. I get a deer every year with this ammo, 7 with it! Absolutely love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 Wounded deer at large... Well it was my youngest daughters first year hunting. Her hunters safety graduation present was a .243. She and i had spent many days and a couple hundred rounds on the range to limit the possibility of wounding an animal out in the field. Honestly my girl was making me look like a newb at the range with 1.5" 4 round groups at 200 yards . Anyhow now we are in the field deer hunting. First deer ranged at 150ish. I am watching through the spotting scope. She fires, I watched the bullet impact 3" high from being a heart shot, deer drops.. We are high 5ing each other and then the SOB gets up and runs off like there is no tomorrow. We followed the blood trail for almost 4 hours and finally had to give up.. Now we are on trip 2. 15 minutes left in shooting light. Deer 275 yards away, standing facing us . Daughter shoots and I once again watch the impact bullet impact the chest of the deer approximately 4" up from the bottom. The deer jumped up and took of running, never stopped and never slowed.. We followed the blood trail into the evening for about an hour and a half then decided it was once again futile. I am not sure if there is an expansion issue with these rounds or if a .243 should just not be used for medium game at all... I would love some input as I am at a total loss here...
