Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best 243 round ever I don't ever write reviews but this ammo is to good not to. Tried 4 different brands in my Remington 700 and this combo was by far the BEST. Sub/Sub MOA groups. Talk about knock down power,my Michigan buck was shot at 75 yards and dropped him in his tracks, so much for needing a big round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mean little pill Have handloaded the .243 SGK for many years now and after perfecting my handload used it for everything. I mean everything from coyotes to elk to moose and 2 very upset badgers. I never lost an animal, tracking was very,very minimal, on deer it was instant lights out, on moose n elk many plowed dirt within 30 yards some 70 yards tops. I know my gun, I know my formula. Only advise i recommend with the SGK is broad side shots only , stay away from high shoulder knuckle shots as this bullet will seperate from the jacket on occasions. On tv and in magazines all you see is this hype about about some new sucker bullets that are twice the price and dont do anything better.... Or I could just grab a SGK and fire up the BBQ.. Excellent factory load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bullet I was hunting last week and dropped a 230 dressed buck on the run at 100 yards. He fell like a ton of bricks as he was chasing a doe. Tried to get his attention but he wanted no part of that. That 243 did the job. I use this bullet in my 270 also on deer and moose and have had no issues. I will continue to use this only.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from accurate used this ammo, hit 4 deer never recovered any,,,found some blood, but no deer, after searching around found others that had same problem,, they seam to agree this bullet it to hard for a 243,, goes in and out,,no opening up..went to fed pre 85 gr barnes and deer dropped,, but now they dont carry barnes anymore, so back to drawing board

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent round Shooting this in a Forbes. Great accuracy and performance on both deer I killed was awesome. One fell in its tracks and other one took 2 steps. Can't ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever I've been use this ammo for last 8 years. Bought a new ruger #1 single shot. 243 cal, took a 240 lb ten pointer at 230 yards. One shot drilled him in the neck, dropped right in tracks. Also useing same ammo in 270 cal and 4570 cal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great ammo. I have been using this load for 2 years now with great sucess on deer, coyotes and groundhogs at ranges out to 475 yds. everything has been 1 shot kills and balistics have been very predictable, in all kinds of weather. It definatly rivals my best handloads in both power and accuracy. Good stuff guys, keep up the good work.
