s1, I'm still trying to recover from the 6-284 project. Being a plumber in a one job household it takes several years to rathole enough change to build a custom rifle
. Not to mention the accessories. You just don't buy a rifle, you buy a case to put it in, the dies to reload for it(wildcats aren't cheap), and the scope (500-1000$), bipod, etc. , the list never seems to end. Although I would really relish a 243 improved in a semi-auto configuration, it'll have to wait several years. You sound like you have one to peddle?
