My Howa 1500 shot well (under 3/4") with 44.0 grains of Reloader 22 and the Nosler 95 Ballistic Tip. Average velocity out of my 22" barrel was 3077 fps.

Not a screamer by any means, however, I'm betting with this bullet and velocity it should work well on the Alabama deer I'll be hunting.

It will do most of what a good 223 will,with "only" 15grs+ less powder. Hint..............

Well, I shot a buck with my .243 Win. yesterday. 40.5 gr. IMR 4350 and a cheap Remington Core-loc 100 gr bullet. With the 18" barrel , it is a slouch of a load I am sure. The deer went 40 yards and that was it. Likely a 125 lb deer gutted. . Some states dont allow .22 cal. for big game though.

A 243 is better than any load you can shoot out of a 223.

I'm going to go ahead and call bullshiit on this comment. And I'll go further and claim you're talking out of your ass.

As to the OP's question, it sounds like you've got a damn near perfect deer load there.

Call anything you want, but the 243 is a better choice for deer than a 223......and it's not even arguable.

Well since I've seen elk taken with that combo here in Oregon, at 300 and 400 yds, it should end up working on ANY deer in Alabama....
IT'S got more punch than you may think.. and a 95 Ballistic Tip is a stout bullet....

If you doubt that, then a simple upgrade to a 95 grain Partition will work just fine...

Can't we all just get along? Snicker. As for me , I have 2 .243 Win. I only have 2 deer and son has a doe. They go about 20 or 40 yds and thats it , so far. Two went in the front shoulder and the other in the liver. Blew the live up . Friday with about a 125 lb buck, a small buck for up in Wisconsin, ran a bit when quartering me, but took out a lot of the heart. My .270 Win always put them down faster when put through the front shoulders. I also want a light .223 Rem. just cause . Cheap on fuel , I have a lot of small rifle primers , and may come a time we will all but not be able to get much for lead , primers and bullets. Never shot a deer with a .223 Rem. , but so many here say they work very well. With all the dead deer and hogs , cant can't say it doesn't work. Everyone here that uses them say they work great.

We’ve used the 95 Ballistic Tip with 4064, Hunter, 22, 19, 4350, etc and man, time after time those suckers always worked great. One of my favorites for a 243, my family calls them the purple people eaters since so many of us have folded so many deer with them.

My .243 has only killed four deer. Back when I lived in a small Nevada town. I taught some of my neighbor's kids how to shoot and when deer season opened, I'd take one along to take their first deer. Rifle was a Kodiak Mauser rebarreled to .243. Not a very pretty thing but accurate as hell. I gave it to a friend's son when I moved to Arizona. Anyway, four lucky kids got to hunt with that rifle. We hunted on a private ranch which made it nice. Results were as follows. One deer DRT, two ran from about 30 to 50 yards and one ran over 250 yards running into a fence, backing up and hitting the fence two more times before finally expiring. Each deer was autopsied to see how the load worked. One that deer that ran such a long distance after the shot, the heart and lungs were literally jello. I have no idea what kept that deer on its feet for so long.
The load was a 100 gr. Hornady spire point, don't remember if it was interlock or pre-interlock, over a stiff charge of 4350. It was my pet coyote load FWIW. I forget which. When we moved here to Tucson, a couple of boxes of shooting stuff never made it here. Dunno if the moving company lost it or someone on the truck helped themselves. One of the missing boxes held all my reloading note from when I first started back in 1954.

You are using that word "know" in error. You should look it up.

But Stick, what difference does it make?? Does any do any more than the .223 Rem, or the 22-250?? I doubt it and I think you will agree, so why bother. My .223 is fine , my .243 Win. blew the front shoulders out of a buck the other day, went through the heart and almost tore it in half , with a Remington 100 gr. bullet I bought for $10.50/100 pack 10 yrs ago. Do I need anything more? The answer is no. Ya Ya, you will say the Core-loc is an epic POS. ,... but they always worked just fine.
