Just had my variation approved for a 308 - it'll be about a week until it comes through, but in the mean time its time to find something! I have a reputation to keep with the missis - I don't think its ever been more than a couple of days since authority to buy has meant I have been out and spent! However, if I cannot find something secondhand I'll buy another Howa 1500 to go with the 243.
After a 308 in good condition, something like a Tikka M595, T3 or a Sako 75. Not sure the budget stretches to 85 money, but it may do for the right gun.
If it is a full kit then great, looking for a scope too - but not too fussed as I think I have my mind set on a Schmidt 8x56 or similar.
I am in Lincolnshire, but travelling to Cornwall and Scotland in the next few weeks so whilst local is preferable I may be able to work others out.
I'll be looking at the CLA too, so hopefully something will come up.
