1/10 twist for 243 and bullet weight for deer?
I'm in the market for a 243 rifle for deer and really want to try a Tikka from all the good I've read about them. My only concern is the twist rate and from what I've read it will be good up to 90-95 grain. I live in indiana so I've always used deer slugs or a muzzleloader, so I'm used to large projecticles for hunting. My question is a 90-95 grain bullet big enough to ethically take a deer with 200 yards being the farthest shot?
PS, Indiana legalized .243's and anything in a .30 with a case length longer than 1.16″ until 2020 on private property only for a trial.
