ive decided to apply for a .17hmr and a 243. Some may argue it's not the ideal combination but I've done it so that's that.
Now I've got the slightly more exciting task of choosing what to buy, I'm on a pretty tight budget and don't really want to spend much more than £1500/£1600 all in, everything included.
I'm pretty set on a CZ 452/455 for the hmr as I've always got on well with them. As for the .243, what to you all think of the Howa 1500? I get the feeling that some view it as slightly cheap and nasty. My other thought is a browning Abolt 3.
It'll be used mainly for lowland stalking/foxing with lots of highseat work and some lamping too.
Thank you you in advance.
