I think the .243 has its place for 100 kilo game animals. I have an acquaintance that has killed over 200 whitetail deer out to 250 meters with one and never lost an animal. Most are just bang-flop (High Shoulder Shot) My problem is with people that insist on taking shots from a bad angle or on 300 kilo animals. It's simply the wrong tool for that application.
Personally I’m not a fan of the 243, but my oldest brother has taken over 100 whitetail with the 243. And an awful lot of those were bang flops also. The cartridge just isn’t for me though. I tend to move toward the oddball rounds lol.
