    Check out gun page 2

    Think they're a bit cheaper, plus they come with their upper end barrel. (sum)

    From the cartridge perspective, if you can get the right twist is the 243WSSM would be my choice.

    i was thinking of getting a AR10 in 260 rem, but the 243wssm upper on my AR would be alot cheeper...

    to bad they dont have a 6.5 wssm :(

    243wssm

    Good twist will send those 105's and 109's (115's if they still make them) down range real smooth and you can push them to heavy speeds.

    a 243wssm is a good roud but it is also a barrel burner,I have one and it shoots well out to a 1000 yrds, but if I had it to do over I would have just spent a little more money and done a 6 BR,it will push a 95 grain berger 3000 + and the barrel life is alot longer, and your only using about 30 grains of powder, put a break on them and you can watch them hit. they are a sweet shooting round.
