ITEM 43A 


BUFFALO BORE PREMIUM SUPERCHARGED 243 WIN. AMMO

The 243 Winchester cartridge is a very useful and versatile cartridge for almost anywhere in North America, which is why we are making a huge selection of loads for it.

When I turned 15, (I’m 59 as of the date of this writing—02-07-18) I bought my first 243 Winchester rifle……..a Browning BLR. By the time I was 17, I had two of them. I never fired factory ammo in either of them, but used only my hand loads. When using purpose designed ammo, the 243 Win. is good for “grenading” small critters like woodchucks, for collecting pelts on foxes, coyotes or wolves or for hunting deer sized game animals. My 243’s spend a lot of time riding on a four-wheeler or hiking with me. I’ve killed black bear and deer with them. I long ago lost track of how many rock chucks and crows have been blown to smithereens with them and if I am in a particularly bloody mood, tree squirrels can be vaporized into nothing more than wet spots on surrounding branches, if you use the right type of ammo.

I do not advocate hunting elk sized animals with even the best 243 big game loads, but it could certainly be done. One of my hunting buddies that grew up in the Salmon, Idaho area was given a 6MM Remington for his 16th birthday and like most ranching kids, they make do with what they have because ranchers do not spend a lot of money on frivolities like multiple guns. From the time he was 16 till his late 40’s, he killed his bull elk and mule deer, each year with that 6MM Remington, which for all practical purposes is a 243 Winchester ballistic equivalent. He killed 30 bulls with that 6MM rifle before he broke down and bought a much more powerful elk rifle. HE NEVER LOST ANY BULL HE SHOT in all those years because he understood the characteristics and limitations of his rifle/ammo and stayed within them. If he could get within a 100 yards, he would head shoot them, but if he could not get that close, which was normally the case, he would wait for a double lung shot and put a 100gr. Nosler Partition hand loaded bullet through both lungs and let the bull run about 50 to 150 yards before piling up.

The light recoil and great accuracy of this little cartridge allow the shooter to do a number of fun chores with it. Ammo selection is critical for the job at hand. We will eventually make the following 6 different loads.

1.  Item 43A — 55gr. Nosler B. Tip @ 4100 fps
2.  Item 43C — 70gr. Nosler B. Tip @ 3650 fps  
3.  Item 43D — 90gr. Sierra FMJ Spitzer @ 3300 fps—“PELT SAVER”
4.  Item 43E —  85gr. Barnes TSX @ 3350 fps
5.  Item 43F — 100gr. Sierra Spitzer flat base @ 3150 fps
6.  Item 43G — 100gr. Nosler Partition @ 3150 fps


This particular write-up is in regards to our item 43A
. At around 4,000 fps, this bullet tends to blow up at any close range (under 300 yards) impact speed on just about any mammal. If you like exploding Rock Chucks or foxes, this is the load. As an example, foxes shot under 200 yards will have an exit hole about the diameter of a football, which means the fox could be blown in half. This is a great load for destroying coyotes or anything smaller, but remember, the hide will likely be destroyed by the fragmenting bullet at these high velocities. The only way I would shoot a deer or black bear with this load, would be if I brain shot them……..to body shoot any animal as large as a mule deer with this high speed, 
lightweight bullet, is a recipe for insufficient penetration and a wounded animal running around the woods suffering needlessly.

You can see my real world velocities from my short barreled rifles below. It should be noted that a normal 24-26-inch barrel will generate 150-200 fps more than my short barreled rifles.

➤  3,945 fps -- Rifles Inc. -- 22-inch
➤  3,941 fps -- Marlin model XS7 -- 22-inch
➤  3,953 fps -- Savage Model 11 -- 20-inch  not a typo
➤  3,872 fps -- Steyr -- 20-inch
