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.

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.
