Greetings from New Zealand
I have a long running debate I would like some help clearing up. Does anyone know if 100gr ammunition was produced by Winchester from the get go when they introduced the .243 Winchester?
I have an acquaintance who swears blind that the .243 Win was never designed to shoot 100gr bullets, and that they came along some time later. True for the .244 Remington, but I am not convinced it is true for the Winchester rifle.
My grandfather bought the one of the first Sako L57s in .243 Win to arrive in NZ in 1957, he taught me in the 1980s, and I am sure he only ever shot 100gr bullets.
Any advice gratefully received.
