The .243 Win. factory-loaded with the 6.5 g (100 gr) Soft Point bullet for bird and medium size game hunting

Lapua’s .243 Winchester ammunition gives you a mild recoiling cartridge with top notch accuracy and a flat trajectory suited to long range hunting. 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.
