Will a 243 wssm fire properly in a standard 243 rifle or is the 243 wssm fired from a completely different rifle?

NO! the 243 wssm cartridge is completely different than the 243 Winchester cartridge.The cartridge case is much wider through the body,and has a lot sharper shoulder angle which sets the headspace on both these cartridge,s.The 243wssm is loaded to a higher pressure also.In effect you would blow the receiver up and yourself if you could get the cartridge to chamber in the breech of your rifle! Do not attempt this in a 243 Winchester chambered rifle.
