What can you hunt with a .223?

Per fish and game codes, is .223 allowed for big game in many states?

As you have a .308, the .243 might be more of a duplicate

What are you trying to do with the new round?

Would you be better off with another .308 in a different configuration?
Longer/ shorter barrel
Lighter or heavier gun
Faster / slower twist for lighter or heavier bullets when reloading?

The velocity delta between .308 and .243 is 400 fps.

How does this impact trajectory / zero at the ranges you intend to shoot?

— is it me, or should the NRA be fighting for firearm education & fighting bad gun laws, not fighting and emailing over coolers?
