    all depends on cash ....cant go wrong with a tikka..

    if you get the synthetic stock like a t3 lite it makes a good gun for lamping a bit more forgiving over wood if you catch it... plus there light for stalking ... i have the super varmint in 243 excellent rifle a tad too heavy but it does the job...

    Depends how much you want to spend, old or new, how far do you want to shoot, My most expensive set up is 600 all in, when I shoot with my mates rifle we are looking with spotting scope etc 12000+. does he shoot more deer than me no, does he kill more foxes at 700 + mtrs yes it's up to you.

    T3 light, can't go wrong or a CZ. You can adjust the trigger to suit as well.
    really you need to try a few to check for fit as well.
    have you got a scope and a mod or is that in the price supplied?
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    I have a scope and a mod on a 223. Luckily the mod is for a 243.

    If you are thinking of using the heavier bullet weights in the .243 - 100- 95gr - consider carefully the barrel twist rate - it can be difficult to stabilise the heavier bullets in a slow twist rate barrel , a quick search on here will bring up several threads on the subject .
