Default RE: 243 vs 30-30

I have both a .243 and a .30-30. If you're expectingto shoot more than 150 yards regularly, I'd opt for the .243. In terms of knockdown power, they are very similar out to 150 yards at which the .243 gains an advantage. If it were me, I'd go with the .243 regardless of range as you have more bullet selection and can hunt anything from small game to Deer sized game with no problem. The .243 will easily take a hog.

Also a .243 bolt action or single shot is inherently more accurate than the .30-30
