.243 Win SubSonic ammo

Post by BassMonkey » Thu Jan 14, 2016 8:06 am

Is the .243 win round available in a subsonic load? If not is it possible to handload this round? Thanks.

Thank, but I got those same results? Funny how article 1 & 3 contradict themselves??? Article 2 is dated, wondering if anyone has come up with something new?

Looking like the conclusion here, is that the .243 win is not an ideal subsonic round?

Curious if anyone shoots a standard .243 win through a suppressor? If it has any significant affect on noise dampening?

i shoot it thru a suppressor. 95 gr nosler ballistic tips at 2800 fps. it is hearing safe. quieter then my 308 with super sonic loads thru the suppressor. its a yankee hill machine phantom 308

I shoot my Ruger .243(full power loads) suppressed all the time. I started out using a Cyclone, but switched to a Harvester. Other than sonic crack, it sounds fantastic.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Good to hear. I have the YHM .22 cal suppressor and have been happy with it. I have been looking at the Phantoms.

You cant go wrong with the yankee hill I have 2 the phantom and the LT phantom. both are great suppressors.
