243 Win Ammo by Hornady: These .243 Win rounds are manufactured by Hornady. They weigh in at 95 grain, making them heavy for the cartridge size although still lightweight for a rifle round. Also, they’re heavy enough to impact targets with far greater force than their lighter counterparts, making them great for hunting coyotes and foxes, among others. These are Hornady’s SST, Super Shock Tip, which expand on impact and deliver a ballistic coefficient superior to that of many similar hunting rounds. These SST rounds are excellent for a clean kill while calling coyotes or foxes.
Highly accurate and dependable, Hornady is motivated by the goal of “Ten bullets through one hole.” Founded in 1949 as a simple two-man operation, Hornady has evolved into world leader in the ammunition industry. Hornady’s Superformance line is engineered specifically for hunting and is manufactured using only the highest quality components.
These .243 Winchester rounds feature Hornady’s patented Super Shock Tip (SST) projectile. Weighing in at 95 grains, SST bullets feature a trademarked InterLock ring system which keeps the bullet’s jacket and core solidly locked during expansion. The jacket and core are also strengthened in critical areas to provide excellent weight retention.
SST bullets also feature a red polymer tip which creates faster, flatter trajectories and a higher ballistic coefficient than the average hunting bullet. The polymer tip also works to initiate terminal expansion to produce an effective wound cavity for a humane kill.
