Morbid Thread: Did Ray Kill King With .243 Or .30-06?

Was just watching a tv show (PBS, sorry fellas) about the last weeks leading up to M.L. King's assassination. It showed the receipt from the rifle James Earl Ray purchased in Ala. and it clearly said .243 cal.; the narrator and others interviewed said it was a .30-06. The 760 Remington pump did come chambered in both at the time, I'm pretty sure. Ray was ex-military, so one would think he would be more familiar with the .30-06. Now what I'm finding is that Hoover's FBI may have never really determined what caliber bullet was fired into MLK.
Not endorsing the actions of human garbage such as Ray, just curious.
