Hi All - need your help.
My mate is returning to the UK soon and would like to sort himself out with rifle, mod, scope and bipod. Trouble is he is on a tight budget and therefore what do you reckon is a good buy? I think the mod and bipod will be ok so could we concentrate on selecting a rifle and scope. I hear the Howa's and A Bolts are good value what about budget scopes? Is it true you get what you pay for? Should he consider a second hand quality set up? How would one know if the rifle had been abused through bad home loading. Calibre, I was going to suggest a 243 - fallow,roe and fox?
Thanks for your help.
