History of Federal 243 Ammo

Established in 1922 by then company president Charles L. Horn, Federal Ammunition has been a leader in ammo development and innovation for a century. And their Federal 243 ammo continues this legacy of accuracy, precision, and stopping power.

The 243 Winchester round has made a name for itself as one of the top deer and varmint hunting cartridges in North America. And there’s no denying the damage that a Federal 243 100 grain soft point can do on a deer, the harvest numbers can speak to that!

Crafted with the finest components and charged with precision, Premium Federal 243 ammo is offered in multiple bullet configurations for your ideal big game hunting round:

  • Berger Hybrid

With all these different bullet options, there’s no deer across the North American continent that can stand up to Federal 243 100 grain ammo.

Developed in 1955, the 243 Winchester was specifically designed as a cartridge aimed for taking down both varmints and deer alike. Capable of firing bullets upwards of 100 grains at nearly 2,000 FPS, Federal 243 has proven to be extremely effective on deer as many hunters choose this ammo for their hunting rifles. Federal 243 100 grain ammo is most commonly used loading for deer and antelope, while lighter loads are available for varmint or smaller predator work like coyotes.
