Thread: Maybe it's because I've been ill lately, but I bought another 243.....

  1. #1

    Maybe it's because I've been ill lately, but I bought another 243.....

    Or maybe because it was a smoking good price?
    Bought a Winchester Model 70 SA (short action, claw extractor, Featherweight-style walnut stock) for $300 today. It has seen some rough handling but is mechanically perfect. It's going to end up another caliber. I have a semi heavy Winchester 308 barrel that would probably turn up but I think I want something a little different. That will be in a while. Too many projects on hand. I may shoot it as it is for a bit.....~Muir

    When fully recovered you'll find Blaser chamber in 243 and one or two other more 'interesting' calibres.

    You know deep down its going to happen!

    Get well soon

    No, he has no idea how many; save his normal response ""More than I need, but not as many as I want."

    He has too many guns, too much ammo and not enough time .
