243 WINCHESTER UPPERS
243 WINCHESTER Upper
The 243 Winchester (6.2x52mm) is a necked-down 308 Winchester introduced in 1955 for small- to medium-game hunting. It is the smallest caliber legal for dear hunting in 10 US states. 243 Winchester, with a muzzle velocity of 3900 fps, is highly accurate at 300 yards. With its low recoil, it can be more accurate for inexperienced shooters. We offer upper receivers that are compatible with both DPMS Gen 1 (LR308) and Aero Precision M5 (AR10) pattern lower receivers. Call us with any compatibility questions, we are here to help.
