The .243 Winchester (6×52mm) is a popular sporting rifle cartridge. Initially designed as a target/varmint round, it may be used for animals such as coyotes, blacktail deer, whitetail deer, mule deer, pronghorns, and wild hogs. It can also be used against larger animals such as black bears and elk but is sometimes said to be “too light” for such large animals. Rounds of at least 90 grains are better suited for hunting larger animals while rounds less than 90 grains are more suitable for varmints. The .243 is based on a necked down .308 cartridge case. It is very popular with target shooters, metallic silhouette, and long range shooters, because of its accuracy and low recoil. This cartridge was first introduced in 1955 for the Winchester Model 70 bolt-action and Model 88 lever-action sporting rifles and quickly gained popularity among sportsmen worldwide. Just about every major manufacturer offers rifles chambered in .243.

The Bullet: Berger Varmint Bullets were designed specifically for the varmint hunter looking for an accurate bullet that will deliver extreme accuracy, consistent instant expansion and devastating results. The large nose opening expands instantly upon impact dumping all of the bullets energy into the target causing extreme expansion creating the highest possible opportunity for a one-shot kill. This bullet is not recommended for the varmint hunter who is looking for a bullet that will not damage the pelt. These bullets are proven in the field to provide exceptional accuracy and a level of expansion that best suits a given varmint or predator application.
The Low Drag bullets are made from a special design that is very effective as a short to medium range varmint/predator bullet.
