Which is better the 243 AI or 243 Ackley?

Which is better the 243 AI or 243 Ackley?

The “improved” version of the cartridge, the .243 Ackley, can do everything its parent can do, with more velocity, and greater brass stability thanks to its 40° shoulder. Among the Ackley variants, the .243 AI is rightly one of the most popular.

Which is better a.243 Winchester or a 6mm Remington?

I feel the 6mm Remington would be an excellent hunting cartridge when mated with modern bullets, especially some of the monometals. But, I also believe the popularity of the .243 Winchester cannot be rivaled, and that the slight advantage that the 6mm Remington may offer isn’t enough to unseat the .243 in any way.

Which is better a.243 Winchester or a Creedmoor?

Maybe the 6mm Creedmoor has the potential to rival the .243 with a strong marketing push, but realize that the .243 Winchester remains in the top ten in cartridge sales; the popularity is still that strong.

What kind of wind drift does a 243 Win have?

In fact, in terms of Wind Drift, a .243 running 115s at 3150 fps beats both the .260 Rem (2850 fps) and the 6.5-284 (2950 fps) running 142 MatchKings.

What kind of grain does a 243 Win shoot?

With 115gr DTAC bullets, a.243 rivals a 6.5-284 ballistically out to 1000 yards. Shooting 80-100 grain hunting bullets, a.243 will anchor a buck with authority. Driving the light 55-75 grain pills, the.243 provides the flat trajectory and high impact energy varminters love.

Is the 243 Winchester a good match cartridge?

If you could have just one rifle to slay varmints, hunt white-tails, shoot paper at long range, and duel in tactical matches, it would be hard to beat the .243 Winchester. This versatile “little brother” of the .308 Winchester is a true triple-threat as a match cartridge, varmint cartridge, and game cartridge.
