I have been toying with getting the rifle above and was after the views of individuals that have/had one. Do you suffer accuracy due to the short barrel and do you lose velocity with factory ammo as the powder has less time to burn? I would imagine that with home loads, a fast burning powder would be necessary. Probably go for one in .243w.
I have a .243 and a .308 at the moment and only use them for stalking, mainly less than 150m distance although on occasion I have taken longer shots. Use mainly factory but have started home loading, not very successfully so far!
