I doubt I will hunt with it, but would like to shoot long range with a 243. I have a Savage 12, that is currently a 223, but i will swap that out to a 243. I am thinking a 1-8 twist bull barrel in the 26" length, and would like to use bullets in the 105 to 115gr range. I read on Midway's write up on the Berger 115, it requires a 1-7 twist. Any recommendations on length, twist, and bullets is appreciated. This will be a slow project due to limited funds, so progress reports might be weeks or months apart.
