The 243 was designed by Winchester back in 1955 and is a great hunting rifle for multiple types of game. Originally designed for varmint hunting, it turned out that with the proper ammunition this round was great for much more than that. The 243 offers the range and energy required for medium game hunting with a manageable recoil.
