Default 243 Single shot

The thermometer got above freezing today, so I loaded up my new Henry 243 and headed for the range. 100 grain Hornady interlock and h4350. I was high to start and I got it dialed in at 25. I moved back to 50 yards off a rest. The first two were about an inch low. One adjustment and the rest is 6 shots. I am happy

There are good reasons that .243 rifles are so popular - accurate, hard hitting, and easy on recoil.

You've got a shooter there. Have you done the Grainger spring?

Are you using the inner spring or the Grainger only? I'm using the inner on my 45/70. Much better trigger and no misfires.

Finally shot my 45/70 with the Grainger spring and the inner spring. Like yours, trigger pull is about half and no misfires.
