I have just had a slot for .243 added to my FAC and am now looking for a rifle.
I will want to use it for fox and deer and already have a great S&B 8 x 56 to go onto it.
I am tempted by a new Browning A bolt but also considering a cheaper used gun (Midland, CZ, BSA etc). Obviously I would inspect the barrels of any used gun to ensure no pitting and that they look clean, but other than shooting them and checking grouping if possible any other hints, tips or recommendations?
Most of my shooting buddies are steering me away from a used .243, but I've not made my mind up!
