    Quite agree,I have the weatherby vanguard in .243,it is an absolute tack driver,(same rifle by the way) with fedral 80gn power shock,it will group under half inch @ 100yds,and with my handloads it will shoot a ragged 5 shot group nearly through the same hole,the only modification I have done to it is fit a Boyds laminate stock,which has floated the barrel,they must be the best value rifle around in my opinion.

    I have the .308, fantastic rifle, haven't tried my home loads yet, I'll probably wait until the end of the season and do some proper work with them. very happy with it though.

    I think self loading is the way forward at the price they are,has anyone used ppu 100g in the 243 howa

    Hornet, I have a .243 howa and would like to fit a laminate stock, did you just order yours from the Internet or is there a uk stockist? Cheers.
