    What are users experience with Nosler Partitions in 85 gr. With a .243 Winchester on Central Texas Deer?

    I will load some up this week and use them in a Remington Model Seven.

    I have used Nosler Partitions in a 25-06 in 115 gr on similar deer near Mineral Wells with some success. The expansion based on the exit hole was not significant.

    Should be more than enough. I use Hornady SST bullets in all my hunting rounds, and the 243 takes them down fine. Furthest run was appx 30 yds when my 14 year old daughter shot her first buck. Though the SST is a 95g bullet. I don't think it would make much difference.

    Will work perfectly fine. Partitions are the standard all hunting bullets are compared to.
