we have shot 4 deer so far this year all using a .243, we haven't seen blood from any of the deer, luckily they haven't traveled far. My question is do you guys think a .243 has enough power for a deer at a 140 yards? Why would we have not gotten blood from any of the deer?
Depends high lung shots won't bleed quickly. But more then likely you are using a cup and core bullet not designed to retain lots of weight.
i think the 80gr TTSX by Barnes in the vortex ammo line is best thing that ever happened to the 243.
I've taken deer well past 200yards with a 243
