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.
