First introduced in 1955 for the Winchester Model 70 bolt-action and Model 88 lever-action sporting rifles, the .243 Winchester (6×52mm) quickly gained popularity among sportsmen worldwide. For its time, it was a ground-breaking. This was due to the round being lightweight, making it great for long-range performance but still offered the stopping power suitable for game up to the size of deer and pronghorn antelope.

I used this in my Remington 700 with a 3-9X Bushnell scope in a sand pit in Maine resting on a plastic gun case on the roof of my car and got 1.5" groups at 100 yards, think what I could have done with a proper rest! I recommend it highly. - D. R.
Absolutely awesome cartridge. My wife shoots these. 3 shots, 3 deer, 50 yds, 140 yds, 206 yds. 1st one ran about 60 yds and dropped, the other two longer shots, deer dropped in their tracks. Flat shooting and hard hitting. - T. W.
