Re: Remington? Let er rip
Probably because they had the good sense to offer it in better cartridges. I am not a fan of the 243Win in a sporter weight rifle, but think they are great in a heavy barreled varmint rig. I did own a 243 sporter once for my kids to start deer hunting with but when my daughter moved out and married I sold the 243. I gave each of my 2 sons a rifle and bought the daughter a model 7 CDL chambered in 7/08Rem, which I would have loved to had for my own.
