    If the pissy little 6BR can routinely run at 2850 with 105s, a .243 should be good for a solid 200fps more than that. Don't believe everything you read in manuals, esp American ones. Equally, don't be too gung-ho by going it at max..

    Dont expect her to enjoy carrying it if you get a MAE
    Werawhakaui?

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    Yip good out to 270m or so, which is the max range I've shot it.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    My Ruger M77 .243 is currently being shortened by Hugh Bradley to 18in, he is then fitting a A-Tec suppressor to it, will lighten it up somewhat, that said I still have my MAE over barrel I can use if I wish.
    Thread remains 1/2 x 20, and will continue to run Sierra 85g HPBT at about 3100fps.
    70ml of 90deg C water pressurised through 13g of roasted finely ground tamped coffee for 25sec's to make a distinguishing sensory hit called a Double Shot

    The smallest and lightest model from us for the .243 Win, is the SL5i

    Fits on the palm of your hand, fully welded stainless steel construction and weighing c. 340 grams.

    If one wants to use it on larger calibres, go with the .30 calibre.

    If only wishing to use on 6.5x55, .243 and and anythiging smaller, then the .25 calibre one.

    Best Regards!

    Running dpt and barrel cut to 20.5 getting 3000fps average, using HDY 87g softpoint, 43.5g of 2209, guessing the 90g Speer and 44g of 2209 would be similar speed just haven't chronographed yet.
