Default 243 WSSM

Is anyone loading this round? If so what powders and bullets have you tried and what seems to work best. I guess I will soon have one to try out. I thought about the 6MM Remington but this caliber should be a little more versitile. I see that Midway has brass for it pretty cheap.

OK guys ENOUGH!!!!I gave into the not having a model 70 before they are gone sydrom. I wen't over to Scheels on their 10 month free layaway and put one away. They had a Model 70 Coyote in 25 WSSM but they wanted 700 bucks for that one. It was new but had a cpuple pretty good dings in the stock. Its a Brown Laminated stock. They had several 325 WSM's for 499.00. But my shoulder would never stand up to that. They had one 270 WSM for 399.00 that was new, but the rest of the 270 and 300 WSMs were 529. I don't know why the one was cheaper.

Yes the 270 WSM Savage is the next one to be picked up. More Later. Some pork chops just arived.

Understood. The more I thought about the 6MM which I really like, the more I thought about the WSSM. It should be the equal of the 6MM Remington plus a little. I quess there is no big difference but now I will have tried all the factory 6MM's except the 240 Weatherby. I checked on components last night at Midway before I headed to Scheels. This will be it for a good while.( Really this time) I have all the layaways I can handle. Besides, the storm clouds are gathering if you know what I mean.

I understand completely. Which is why I am still single I think........I figured a new 4 wheeler 2 weeks ago, and a new bow last nite, none of which would be possible with a significant other. Plus my '67 F100 mud bogging truck I'm just finishing building.......Gotta love new toys!

My other half has been pretty darn supportive of my habits. Shes a farm girl too and likes to hunt and fish. She thinks though that Scheels will be buying from me pretty soon. I have enough fishing stuff to outfit two states worth of fishermen.
