6mm .243 Caliber (.243) 85 gr. HPBT

For rifles chambered in 6mm cartridges, the #1530 85 grain hollow point boat tail bullet has proven to be highly effective on medium game, such as deer and antelope, and it is outstanding in this application. It is one of the best all-around bullets for rifles chambered in 6mm Remington or 243 Winchester.  It is one of the most recommended bullets for varmints such as prairie dogs, groundhogs, coyotes, to medium game such as deer and antelope.  Shooters using any rifle in the entire range of 6mm cartridges will find this to be an excellent bullet. This bullet shoots like a MatchKing and expands like a hunting bullet.

 

In handguns, the 85 grain #1530 Hollow Point Boat Tail bullet is nearly ideal for all shooting applications. In cartridges from the 6mm BR up to the larger wildcats chambered in the Remington XP-100 and other strong single-shot handguns, this may be the best single bullet. When used with smaller-capacity cases at close range it would be suitable for varmints. This is a fairly "hard" bullet when fired from a handgun but a good choice for most applications and conditions.

I have shot this bullet for nearly fifty years. I shot the barrels out of three 243 Winchesters and will soon have to find a new barrel to put on the Model 70 now in use. This is the only bullet I will use in my rifle and what I will reload for my friends...Superb performance on deer and antelope as well as varmits and coyotes. You can't ask for more in 6mm than what this bullet will do for you

Used it in my 243 to kill a bunch of deer and hogs. Biggest hog was over 250lb. It is super accurate in my Tikka and very very effective. I will try it in another AR build in 6x45 but I'm pretty sure results will be similar.

Once again this bullet (the 85 gr. Game King) gave excellent performance on Minnesota whitetails. Complete penetration with a good, but short blood trail. I have taken six deer using this bullet and highly recommend it.
