I've had the nod from the feo to get a one for one done to allow me a .243 for deer and fox. Now the big question?
Is there a particular make of rifle to avoid or go for at the lower end of the money scale? What are the obvious signs to look out for and how can you tell if the barrel is well worn?
I'm a big old unit at 6' 3" and 16 - 17 (ish) stone so rifle weight is not a real problem. There's a Parker Hale i've been asking about at about 200 quid on here that seems ok, but then there seems to be quite a few around this price if I look around. Although this is threaded for a mod which is handy.
I have a 90's Tasco 3-9 x 50 scope which is in great condition and clear as a bell which I thought may be ok on top? Am I correct?
Any pointers please?
