The new 243 wssm cartridge from Winchester is causing quite a stir among varmint shooters and deer hunters. When you compare 243 ballistics against 243 wssm ballistics, both cartridges produce similar ballistics.
The 243 wssm, however, when compared to the 243 Winchester, is significantly shorter cartridge length. And the short, fat cartridge design of the 243 wssm results in efficient powder burning, producing consistent muzzle velocity and high level of accuracy.
The 243 wssm ballistics are virtually identical to the 243 Winchester, but what makes this cartridge even more appealing when compared to a regular 243 is the super short-action length and therefore more compact, handier rifle.
