Re: Savage .243

Yeah its a pretty good shooting gun. The only down side is the bolt is on the wrong side. Darn lefties.

You say that but as a right handed shooter I thing I could get along quite well with a left handed bolt. It never made any sense to me why I should have to take my hand off of the grip/trigger. I guess its the single action shooter in me.

Savage, you'd better be careful or you'll end up needing a new barrel. I feel for ya I'm on 350 with my edge, 200 on my 243, 150 on a 6mm06 and 150 a piece on two different 300 RUM's since mid July. My wife is getting sick of it.

Love them 243's.

Why, so you can replace that one sooner.

I suspect you'll fall in love with the 115 DTAC's if you do. They are reasonably priced.
