Buy or build with the features you actually want, dip it later if you choose to, and you'll still have money left in your pocket.
I'm with cbass. The r25 is a fine rifle. My buddy has one in 7mm08 that'll hold 1inch or so and it seems to run just fine. (he loves it, and hasn't mentioned any hiccups at all) But, the DPMS version will leave you with money in your pocket to put toword optics, mounts etc. I think you can Duracoat, hydro-dip, Ceracoat, or whatever the DPMS for less than the difference between the two rifles anyway. But if you don't mind paying a bit extra, I'm sure you'll be happy with it.

Re: Any opinions on Remington r25 243

I have the DPMS version, the LR-243. It a reliable rifle, it hasn't jammed or went goofy on me yet. My last group at 100yds went just over .600 for 4 shots. All i've done to it is change out the trigger springs & throw a scope on it.

It does what I want it to. I'd say go for it if you want the 243.
