Re: 243 to ???

The above calibers will work through a 243 size action if it comes to rebarreling. Nothing more irritating than a gun that won't shoot( Well, perhaps a truck that won't start when you are miles from a phone is more irritating).
Good luck.

    If I had it to do over again I would have put the same caliber and contour as the 20"sporter 243 that it started out with(man I miss that gun!!)Instead I put a 27"heavy fast twist .224 in 22-250 on it.It works fine the way it is.....its just different.
    Rugers are not noted for being tack drivers but make very good getitdone guns with a little tuneing and the 243 is very versatile!

    I'm gonna have it completely tuned and rechambered to 243AI. Gonna try to keep the same stock barrel for now let you know how it turns out.
