This accurate, low-recoil cartridge is all about versatility and it’s a great choice for hunters that want one caliber to do it all from varmints to wild hogs to whitetail deer, depending on the bullet weight.

All of our .243 rifles utilize a barrel with a 1:10 twist rate, which can reliably stabilize both sides of the .243 bullet weight spectrum. It’s easy on the shoulders, wholly capable of reaching out beyond .30-30 distances, and has a huge variety of factory-loaded ammunition available globally. There’s no doubt it deserves a spot as one of the best all-around hunting cartridges, especially for new hunters.

As the saying goes, “Beware the man with one gun – he just might know how to use it.”
