Given any thought to rebarreling to 6.5-284? Excellent for your intended yardage and more.Inherently accurate and good barrel life for hunting purposes

He will probably want to keep the short action, and use the magizine for hunting purposes.
The 260 would be a great choice as well

What do you guys think about Drury just opening his .243 to a .243 AI then lapping the bore and getting some good optics if he dosen't already have them?
GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!

That is a great alternative but honestly, loading a 243 with 95 to 107gr bullets is plenty for broadside boiler room shots out to 400yds.

Then he still has a huge selection of varmint bullets for closer work.

Personally, I would load the 105gr Amax and just shoot everything with that.

Re: Rem 700 newbie questions.....

the 105's or 107's would be good but i dought if his gun would stabilize them.most production 243's are a 10 twist.i agree,get something that works well out of your gun in the 95-100 range and shoot everything.sorry, i thought you were a newbie to the sport.
