hi folks, hoping people will give me some advise. i had my heart set on a cz 455 varmint laminated thumbhole in .17 hmr for targets and vermin, i planned to use this and then get a howa 1500 in .243 for foxing and long range targets. the problem is i can only buy one. the cz is £450 with 16" barell and screwcut etc, the howa is a pepper laminated thumbhole varmint model with predator 8 moderator and scope for £1000. the land outside my house has been granted for using a hmr and would be a great tool for the crows but im not so sure that i would be happy using one on it as there is only a couple of acres with houses near by, this means i would have to go up the hills were i have permssion to 600 acres of land. if i take the hmr up there then the wind might stop me from hitting anything dedent at 100-150 yards. that makes the .243 the better option but at £1 per round maybe its 2 expensive for target shooting when im not hunting.
any help would be great
