Re: What to get in .243
Well, I've never owned a Weatherby, but they seem to have a reputation for underwhelming accuracy, from what I've read and heard. On the other hand, Sako, Tikka, Remington, and Kimber all make similar rifles that are reputed to offer very good to outstanding accuracy, depending on the individual rifle. In researching my first custom rifle several gunsmiths discouraged the use of the Weatherby saying they were difficult to get to shoot even with "accurizing". I've owned two .243 caliber rifles, one a Kimber that I haven't shot yet, and the other a custom that was wickedly accurate. I found this caliber to be a really effective varmint round.
