I use Federals through my Rugers (what they recommended )
have started using the Federal Fusions this year & I am really liking them may want to try a box looks like they do a .243 in 95 grain or the federal Vital shock in 100 grain personally I never had good luck with Remington ammo but it could be my Rugers don't do well with it either

Default Matching ammo to guns

Yeah my rugers and t/c's do not like remington ammo. Federal, hornady or handloads rock!
