.243 Win. loaded with the 5.8 g (90 gr) FMJ bullet

Lapua’s .243 Winchester (6.16×51) ammunition gives you a mild recoiling cartridge with top notch accuracy and a flat trajectory suited to long range hunting and target shooting alike. Like many other cartridges of today, the .243 Win began as 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 a preferred caliber of bird and medium size game hunters. The .243 Win loaded with our 90 grain full metal jacket bullet is suitable for both sport shooting and hunting.
