    I AM KEEPING MY .243 BUT WANT A 2ND RIFLE,JUST WONDERING WHAT TO GET?

    My vote would be 7 mm08 sell the 243 and buy a .222 then your covered for everything
    There are no perfect men in this world ..... Only perfect intentions

    .270 or a .3006 its something bigger your after, your .308 .708 (pussy calibres)they are the same size of cartridges as your 243 so there's no much point in that.

    .280 Custom build. Never any need to change rifles ever again after.

    270 will cover all the UK has to offer.

    I have .243 for the smaller deer and .270 for anything larger / stronger.

    Expect a lot of replies with weird and wonderful caliber and case combinationsbut to my mind why complicate it.

    243 and 270 are a tried and tested partnership

    ideally I would look for bullet weight overlap between calibres to take into account all needs
