Thread: 1500 for a .243 setup

  1. #1

    1500 for a .243 setup

    So I can budget around 1500 for a .243 setup (rifle, optics, mounts, mod).

    ​What would people advise?

  2. #2
    Second hand C.Z. or Parker Hale rifle 250-400. May get one with mounts but if not Warne mounts are good but not sure how much, mine cost 50 years ago. 6x42 Leupold second hand 250, Wildcat Pre. 8 mod 200. Comes in at less than a grand spend the rest on stalking, simples
    Tusker.

  3. #3
    Rifle: Tikka T3 lite 725 (best new price on gun trader)
    scope: Schmidt and Bender 8x56 350 secondhand
    Rings: Sako optilock one piece rings 100 ish SAKO OPTILOCK Ring mounts
    mod: Atec Maxim 250 ish
    Bi-pod: Harris BRM 60 secondhand.

    This is the set up I would have if starting out again.

    Cant see why. Most will not have seen any action. Lots of talking and not much shooting in this business. The sako 75 is an excellent piece of kit.
