History of the Remington “Etronx” (Electric Primed) cartridges:
Remington introduced the Electric Primed “Etronx” in the mid to late 1990’s, in three calibers loaded by the factory, 220 Swift, 22-250 Remington, and 243 Winchester.
The case, propellant and bullet are conventional components, the difference is in the primer, the EtronX system utilizes a patented technology to electronically discharge the round.
The Rifle a Remington 700 had a retail on $1,999.00 and was not affordable or well received by the general public.
These are Factory loaded cartridges and considered Obsolete and no longer made by Remington.
History of the .243 Winchester Cartridge:
The .243 Winchester was introduced in 1955 by Winchester for their model 70 bolt-action rifle.
The .243 Winchester is basically a .308 Winchester case necked down to accept 6mm projectiles.
This was a very successful caliber as Winchester had the foresight to use a tight 1 in 10 twist in the Model 70 barrel to stabilize heavier projectiles up to 100 grain, making this a great “all in one” hunting cartridge from varmint to deer.
Still a good pick today for the one rifle home.
