Thread: Which lightweight stainless/synthetic .243 and why?

  1. #1

    Which lightweight stainless/synthetic .243 and why?

    As the title says....

    I'm thinking of going down this route. I currently use a tikka t3 hunter with a pecar scope and although this is a great set up and am very pleased with it, I'm hankering for a stainless/synthetic rifle and a lighter scope.....

    I'd be looking at a budget of around 500 for the rifle.

    Also what lightweight 6 power scope within 250?

    Answers on a postcard please......

    Thanks.

    Look around for a S/H Tikka T3 lite stainless/synthetic.

    You know it makes sense....

    ONe of the sorriest things I've ever done was not snatching up a lovely left handed lightweight Weatherby in 243. Had a fluted stainless barrel and was super light.

    Now now Hibrion ............................................ you may console yourself who lucky you were in getting away from that one. Unless it was cheap enough to sell off quick to some unwary for a nice fat profit. Of course depending upon one morals .

    I take it you are not a fan of Weatherby rifles, Brithunter? I have limited experience with them, but I really liked that particular rifle. The only problem was that, at the time, I didn't have the cash for a Weatherby
