Ok folks I've got two slots on my ticket to fill, .243 and .308!
My quarry is fox, roe, munty and reds. I will also be dipping into a bit of range shooting.
Now my question is.... (and forgive me as I'm sure this has been asked before) with a £2000 ish budget what would you do?
.243 or .308 first? I feel I should go for brokeish on one and second hand the other.
New or second hand? (I'm a bit worried about buying a lemon second hand)
Stainless or blued? Fluted? (Won't be doing a lot of distance in my stalking so not sure re weight also if I get into range work should I go heavy?)
I've been trawling the web and quite like the look of the Tikka T3 Hunter. I like the security of wood. Had a little play with a Howa (plastic stock) and could have blown the stock on the barrel! I also like the thought of a CZ as I have a .17hmr and can split pencils all day long with it.
Any positive thoughts?
Currently I'm thinking of a T3 Hunter stainless not sure re fluted?
Ps hope your enjoying your evening? What are you drinking? Just gone on to G&Ts!! Mmmm
