        I like the .243 for hunting and have taken a few deer with it. My wife also uses a 243 for Elk and has shot three elk.

                My first centerfire rifle was a 6mm Rem. and it accounted for ALOT of deer in Alabama. 95 gr Nosler Partition worked best for me and I forget how much H4831.
                I only recall 1 deer that was ever lost that was shot with this rifle. The only drawback to the .243/6mm was many times the blood trail was next to nonexistent, to rectify that, I simply started shooting them high in the shoulder and they dropped right there.
                Like treestand, my 'go to' rifle these days is a 7mm/08.

                    Don't own one, but i've seen a few deer drop in their tracks shot with one. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one for my youngsters to hunt deer with.
