I have been curious for a while as to why there are no ELD-type factory loads for the .243. I know the caliber has a reputation as a barrel burner when pushed, but the .243 is a very common deer cartridge (at least in the midwest), thus would be readily available for someone interested in trying their hand at the PRS style shooting w/o having to buy a new rifle. I have several rifles in the popular PRS calibers and enjoy shooting them, but still have a soft spot for the .243 and have shot it since the late 60's. George Gardner proved what it could do, PRS-wise, a few years back. There are several good 6 mm bullets available for hand loaders with the rising popularity of the 6's in long distance shooting. So why no Hornady, Federal etc. factory 103, 105, 110 or 115's? Is it a barrel twist thing in factory barrels or.......? I have grown to hate reloading and have a nice custom R700 .243 that just sits in the safe. I'm sure their are simple reasons that I am unaware of so someone please enlighten me. Thanks!
