Greetings: New member from Nevada; I want to buy a rifle in .243 caliber, but I do not know which one, under 1,000. Why a .243, because is easy to shot, accurate, easy to reload, and cost effective, if I reload. For hunting in the future, under 150 pounds at a range under 200 yards, for a humane kill, need to learn how to place the shot at the correct moment and time. I am a beginner, but willing to learn. I have a Marlin 1894 JM .357 magnum, CZ 527 varmint .223 and few others toys. Thank you and be safe.
