I've been cyber researching this for months and thought I'd made a good decision, until I eventually asked a real person for his opinion and now I'm as confused as ever.
It'll be my first deer rifle and the only one I'll own for the foreseeable future so I reckoned a .243 would be a good entry level, giving me the option of stalking in England if the chance ever came up and offering a huge range of ammo.
I live in Scotland and there's a really good chance this rifle will never see anything other than roe and foxes over the next year or two. So what do you guys think? Should I keep all options open to me with the .243 or would I be more comfortable with something that'll adequately do the job like the .223 that was suggested to me today?
Do any of you guys own both? If so, what's your fav? Would you take the .243 with you for roe and foxes and leave your .223 at home?
Thanks in advance for the conflicting advice I feel I'm about to receive.
