I'm looking for a first rifle for my son. As luck would have it I have an opportunity to buy a Rem 700 wood stock chambered in 243. The gun is 30 years old and probably only had 40-60 rounds through it. The guy wants $250 for it. Sounds like a great deal to me. I heard that the older 700's were better. Can anyone give me input on this rifle? Also, since it's for my young son, how does the kick compare to a 22-250? Thanks!
