I have a feeling that this question might well solicit some contention, however....
For, say £500-800, what do you guys reckon is the best option for a .22lr set-up (new or used)?
Also, same question for a .243.
Both will be for sport rather than work, so I want tools that are a pleasure to use rather than just functional!
Anyone reckon it's worth spending a bit more (or a bit less!)?
Also, it'd be great to canvass opinion on whether it's worth the premium for a new rifle as opposed to second-hand (only had shotguns before, so not as much of an issue).
Thanks in advance for any advice.
