    243 Which one?

    Hi all
    just sent off for my variation for a 243
    i currently have a tikka 223 1.8 twist (what is very accurate with home loads)

    I should get it has I was granted it 2 years ago under mentor conditions
    but didn't have body on hand like I do now,land passed passed etc,

    im just wondering what you gents would recommend, a good rifle out the box
    not bothered about weight just want a good solid accurate rifle & and what's the best twist rate etc,

    hope im I not counting chickens before they've hatched lol

    The best 243 is one that stays on the shelf when you pick up your 6.5x55 or 7mm-08.~Muir

    Howa are very good for their money. I got mine from mike norris and he done a few little mods. Brock & norris use them for their custom jobs.
