Default Quit making the ammo my gun loves!

I have a Remington .243 that I've Had for 10 years or so. The entire time I've shot hornady 100gr BTSP light magnums. Now that they aren't making them anymore I bought a box of the hornady whitetail and they don't shoot worth a flip. Any suggestions....... Or any of y'all interested in loading me some that are like the light magnums ! Really don't want to have to buy a bunch of ammo to try and find something it'll shoot as well

SuperFormance are the replacements for the light magnums.

Surely somebody still has them even though they aren't made anymore. Do a google search and when you find some, load up.

I was told that but do they make them with the boat tail soft point? All I've seen are ballistic tips

Try the federal BTSP. .243 100gr Sierra Gameking BTSP. My sister's .243 shoots under an inch with those. Try them out.

They aren't currently producing that ammo. This is a list of current production bullets (left column) and ammo (right column) from hornady. If it isn't listed here then it has been temporally suspended until they can catch up to current market demand.

+1 on the federal......my sister-in-law is using my grandpaws BAR 243 and shoots the federal premium sierra gameking BTSP in 100g and has been stacking bucks like cordwood the past 3 years with it. It is a tack driver and I watched her drop a 7 point running wide open across a bald hill last year at 350 yards according to the range finder while we were standing on a round hay bail. I also shoot the same bullet in my BAR 7mm in the 165g not that its relevant.
