Can I just say new to the forum so be good
Hoping to be in the position to fill a .243 slot in the next couple of weeks so have been having a nose. Not looking to spend a fortune as this is the first venture into centre fire for me, if enjoyable and I have the time to make the most of it, then calibre may be reviewed in a few years time and budget a little bigger.
Had thought a second hand wooden stock .243 would be just the ticket, have steered clear of synthetic in the past, no real reason just don't like the look of. Then someone put a synthetic Browning A Bolt into my hand - pleasantly surprised in the feel & price that he would supply at if purchased as a package.
So anyone have any experience of the A Bolt? I dismissed the Howa on principle alone which seems to be a budget package set up that a few people push (trade), is this something I should be looking at after all? Is there anything else I should be looking at? Tika / Sako would be a tad excessive at this moment in time. The thought of purchasing new is of comfort I must admit.
