This 243 Win cartridge from Federal’s Vital-Shok line of ammunition sports a 55 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip projectile. Billed as delivering the kind of accuracy, consistency, and downrange punch required to take bucks down fast and cleanly, this bullet has a streamlined polymer tip that resists deformation in the magazine and initiates explosive expansion upon impact. This flat-shooting bullet’s fully tapered jacket and special lead alloy core permit controlled expansion, and further offer optimal weight retention at practically any velocity. Its heavy jacketed base strengthens the bullet to resist deformation while firing, and additionally serves as a platform for a wide diameter mushroom. This bullet’s ballistically engineered solid base has a boat tail design, which even further increases its accuracy as it grants the projectile some resistance against the effects of crosswinds. This cartridge is fully reloadable thanks to its Boxer primed brass casing, so you’ll find a lot to treasure in this technologically advanced round.
