Thread: .243 on a budget

    .243 on a budget

    Looking for a .243 to replace my .223 as my fox/small deer rifle.
    Need something on a budget as just found out I have twins on the way.
    Not worried one bit how it looks cosmetically.....a good accurate rifle with a good bore is all im interested in.
    Would consider a full set up for right price but rifle and mod only is really what im looking for.
    Would also prefer a face to face deal in East Anglia is possible.
    Cheers

    smooth bolt.
    great feel in your hands
    crisp trigger.

    Cheers Bob.....I'm sure they are great value but way more than i have to spend; especially when you factor in mod and scope.

    I have a sako 591 in .243 400 including optilock rings and bases (inch or 30mm). Wildcat 8 75 Can't do face to face I'm afraid, so need to add RFD fees

    Good luck with the twins. I had to put shooting aside for a few years as caring for twins isn't really a solo parent experience & both our sets of parents were living in NZ. Hope your parents are closer or you can afford to buy help!
