Default RE: .243 users????

My brother uses a 95 grain bullet with his 243 after having a bad experiance with an 80 grain bullet not producing enough hit at 150 yards on a misplaced shot. It was a lengthy recovery effort to find out that most of the buck was eaten by the wolves within the 6 hour search.
given that it was a misplaced shot, i'm not sure if it would have made any difference ifhe had used a 100g bullet in that 243 or a 150g out of a 270. A misplaced shot usually equals lengthy recovery
I use 100 g out of my 243
