Looking for info on a .243 for my grandsons 1st deer season, thinking synthetic since it will probably get some scratches on it, he has a Remington BDL 30-06 waiting till he gets alittle older, it’s an older one when they were good, anyway, I know Savage, Mossberg, Ruger and Winchester all make one. What are your thoughts? Thanks!!
Another vote for the TC. I have a Venture in .22-250 and when it was time to get my son a rifle for deer. I again picked the Venture. I just think there's a lot of gun and features there for the money. We settled on the 7mm-08 for him. My 22-250 shoots really well, but he gets teeny tiny groups out of it with some handloads that I made for the 7mm-08. Or maybe he's just getting better than me ;-)
Savage 11 or 111 in 243 wood stock or synthetic would be fine, I got my Grandson a Savage 111 in 25-06 wood stock it looks good and shoots great. What ever you decide on I`m sure your Grandson will love it...….
