The Pinnacle/autogated tubed one is only rated to 223, think all the other tube options are rated higher, so you need one thats not pinnacle/autogated.

F9815WG is the weapons grade tube. You have an expensive piece of kit, so don't risk it.

Have a look at this post from David.
It's a complicated question. The .243 is right in the danger zone. My recommendation would be Gen2 or non-gated Gen3 with a halo size well above 1.0mm

I don't post this much here because in the UK there's not a lot of Gen3 and not a lot of use of larger calibers.

G/s around 300 or less = Usually OK. 400 = precautions as above. 500+ = DO NOT USE without recoil mitigating housing.

It's not an absolute list - just a guideline to help with NV selection Vs Cartridge selection. It's based on a 4Kg rifle ( US AR15 ) so take that into account also. Only fixed rifle weight counts. But it helps put peak recoil in perspective.

Regards
David

( I have the full table available if anyone wants it - this is just cartridge and peak recoil in G's - Note, Moderators and muzzle brakes will not have any effect on the below calculations )

Mines a weapon grade tube as the guy says above 1.25 halo 223 rating is 3.50 my 22.250 is 3.57 so not a lot in it but if you take into consideration mine is a remme700 vssf the rifle wieght is over 11lb rigged as it has the heavy stainless barrel the the recoil of my rifle is less than the standard 223 so in reality I should be fine
