I've got to ask, "Why?". The .260 has recoil almost as light as the .243 but is useful on much more game, with far better penetration and range. (If this was stainless/synthetic I would probably grab it.)

My uneducated guess is probably factory ammo. You can buy 243 from every Joe, Bob and Bill on the street but they likely wont have 260. Although I couldnt agree more with you. 260 is one heck of a round in my opinion.

Pretty simple really, I gave my fiance my spare .243 and I want to replace it, but I need to replace it with a .243 otherwise my excuse of, "I need another gun so we can share ammo" won't work...I would love to have a .260, I already have a 6.5x284 tho and I am kinda fond of the 6mm chamberings.

Oh man, you're doing this all wrong!!! Let me lend a helping hand...

You need to snap up this .260 immediately. When your fiancÚ asks, you'll tell her the price was so good that you couldn't afford to miss out on the rifle. Then you'll keep looking for the .243 because you still need another gun to share ammo with her.
