Due to unforeseen financial issues I am forced to sell my 243
Only bought recently it has been fully stripped, cleaned and serviced, inside and out, including a full strip of the bolt.
Stock has been steamed and oiled and is in excellent condition.
Bore is not worn and it has crisp rifling at throat and muzzle.
Front and rear sights were removed before I got it and I have fitted blanking plugs into screw holes to keep dirt out.
Screw Threaded in 1/2" UNF with an Alloy thread protector. (Mod not included)
Currently has Leupold 30mm Mounts and a
Leupold VX3 6-20x40 Varmint reticule scope with Butler creeks (I also have a set of 1" rings if the 30mm ones are not of use)
I will split and the scope comes with all paperwork and box
(N.B. bipod not included but will sell seperately, Harris 9" swivel)
I have not had a chance to play around with loads but in the one opportunity I had to try the Hornady 87gn SP and 100gn SPBT it produced this.
Lapua Brass, CCI200 primers, 39.5gn N160, 100gn SPBT
the 87gn need some tweaking
Lapua, CCI200, 46.3gn N160, 87gn SP
I have put less than 40 rounds through it. Previous owner fired less.
Rifle £175 collected, will throw in a sling and bits/bobs
Rifle plus scope - £575
I also have some federal factory ammo and a brand new box of berger 90gn match bullets (£35) that I will throw in if it sells all together.
The rifle is a bargain at this price and comes free if bought with the scope.
Please no silly offers, I am selling this to fund more important things like my kids, not because I want a new rifle.
Based in Edinburgh but willing to travel to accommodate face to face sale
