    Wanted...0.243 rifle (and scope)

    Hi, I'm new to stalking and am looking out for a used 0.243 rifle for very occasional roe stalking. If you have one, or know of one, ideally with a decent scope, to get me started, I'd be very interested. I'm in the west country but willing to travel for the right gear.

    Thanks.

    That's a great kit package for someone. It's all there.
    If you have the cash to spend look no further than the last post.
    When you do the sums that's a great deal.

    I wouldnt worry about a second hand .243 unless its had 1000s of rounds of abuse put through it. Its a very efficient cartridge and they are not known for burning out...! I know of several that have had over 3000 rounds through them and they are still going.

    A good portion of all calibres suspected of being shot out, never reach a smith with a borescope, a further large percentage of these "shot out" rifles, will return to usable accuracy with a proper cleaning.
