Up until now, I have been shooting roe with my .22-250 (I live in Scotland) although I have recently aquired some new land with larger species of deer and as such have had a .243 put on my ticket.
I am looking to trade/sell my current .22-250 and buy a .243 instead.
I know that everyone has their own ideas on what makes a good rifle for stalking but I was looking for suggestions on what models you use.
I reckon I can afford about £550 for the rifle either new or s/h and then I will get a moderator on top of this at the extra cost.
I know that sako and tikka are good but they are out of my price range and wondered are the likes of mossberg, browning i have seen on guntrader are like.
Stalking is mostly walked up rather than high seats so lighter weights would be an advantage.
