Thread: .243 and .308.

    .243 and .308.

    Looking for 243 and/or 308 rifle.

    I will consider any option as really not sure what to go for. Best option would be a screw cut rifle with moderator and mounts. I already have a scope for it, but might buy a full package with scope at good price.

    I really like Steyr Mannlicher rifles. Half-stock Classic or older Luxus/L model would be my favourite, but also a Pro Hunter/Mountain synthetic stock. Any good S/H European rifle considered.

    Show me what you have.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the offer, but Remington is not at the top of my list.

    Hi Greg,

    I have a 5 month old Sako Bavarian in a .243 with a lovely grained wooden stock. It's threaded to M14x1 with a stainless steel thread cap and an un-used T8 Reflex sound Mod with a 'Bush Muffler' neoprene mod cover. I'm selling it with 30mm scope mounts without the scope, and the action has been partially bedded. It also has a very nice single set trigger.

    I've put 60 home loaded rounds through the rifle from new in total (without the sound mod on) and have developed a 70grain Nosler BT load that shoots ragged holes on the paper at 100m. I was very particular to shoot the rifle in when it was brand new, with a process of copper cleaning in between the first five rounds to break in the virgin barrel to prevent throat damage and increase barrel longevity.

    If you’re not familiar with this model, here’s the link to the Sako website:

    Anyway, the whole package cost me £1680 new, and i'm after £1350 ONO for it as it is. It still looks the same as when it came out of the box for the first time, with no marks whatsoever; for all intents and purposes its as new.

    Photos are available; let me know if you’re interested,
