243 Ammo

Used to shoot just about every game animal found in North America, the .243 Winchester is a highly versatile sporting cartridge originally designed for varmints. While most firearm manufacturers offer a model in this caliber today, the Winchester Model 70 and 88 were the first guns to be chambered for it in the mid 1950s.

.243 Winchester ammunition belongs firmly in the "light and fast" camp but fires a wide variety of bullets weighing in at anywhere from 55 to 105 grains. As you might imagine, this results in a range of velocities between 3,000 and 4,000 feet per second. Heavy soft point bullets are ideal for taking deer, hogs, and other midsize game, while lighter jacketed hollow point projectiles fragment quickly to drop coyotes and other pests in their tracks - you'll find cartridges loaded with both bullet types for sale here at Widener's.

Many manufacturers produce .243 Winchester ammo, often with the latest polymer-tipped designs that deliver improved terminal performance. Federal, Winchester, Remington, and Nosler are a few notable players in this market.

    Are you taking your 243 Win rifle deer hunting? Winchester Deer Season XP Copper Impact is the natural choice of ammo if you are obligated by law to avoid firing lead projectiles. That said, this ammo is sure to impress wherever you take it!

    The Copper Extreme Point is a monolithic bullet – 100 percent copper, so it can’t put lead fouling all over your bore just like it can’t taint your quarry’s delicious venison. The Copper Extreme Point’s sleek polymer tip, smooth shank and boat tail all help it retain more downrange momentum. The 0.350 G1 ballistic coefficient bullet will fly along a flat trajectory and transfer over 1,000 ft lbs of energy to any target within a range of 360 yards.

    The Copper Extreme Point excels at retaining its weight during penetration, so it reliably conserves the momentum it needs to reach a vital organ. The bullet’s massive polymer tip is not an aesthetic feature. Because the tip’s base is so wide, it produces extremely rapid and injurious terminal expansion beginning right at the moment of impact!

    This ammo’s lead-free, flat-shooting, hard-hitting and fast-expanding bullets are all seated in top-notch reloadable brass cases, with the premium primers and propellant they need to deliver zero surprises once you’ve finally found your buck.

    You’ve got the fever. Deer fever, to be more precise, for which there is only one known cure. But before you set out to tackle the forest’s mightiest whitetail with your 243 Win rifle, make sure you’re stocked up on Browning’s excellent BXR label ammo!

    The Rapid Expansion Matrix Tip is specifically engineered to take down whitetail, blacktail and antelope. The ballistically efficient 97 grain bullet follows a flat trajectory while simultaneously retaining exceptional energy. The bullet nearly reaches 400 yards before it conserves less than the minimum 1,000 ft lbs of energy typically recommended for bagging bucks.

    The Rapid Expansion Matrix Tip bullet makes effective use of so much kinetic energy. On impact its copper/polymer Matrix Tip disintegrates while its precision nose cavity initiates massive outward energy transfer coupled with wide terminal expansion. With good aim you’re assured the clean kill which means no more tracking for the day!

    This ammo’s nickel-plated brass cases are more than just reloadable. Nickel protects sensitive brass against forming abrasive corrosion, and its sleekness provides additional assurance that this high-quality American-made ammo will feed and extract like clockwork.
