.243 Winchester

Passion for Precision

Hunting trips should leave you with fond and unforgettable memories. Lapua’s .243 Winchester ammunition gives you a mild recoiling cartridge with top notch accuracy and a flat trajectory.

Like many other today´s cartridges the .243 Win was originally a wildcat - necked down from the .308 Win. It gained popularity in North America among deer and varmint hunters, and in Scandinavia it has always been known as a caliber of bird hunters and medium size game hunters. The two major reasons for the .243’s popularity have been the flat trajectory for the long range hunting situations combined with very mild recoil. The Lapua® ammunition selection for this caliber includes three different rounds: the FM, the Naturalis® and Soft Point.
