Greetings from Kansas. I have been lurking for quite a while on this board soaking up the wealth of information here, and finally purchased my first centerfire hunting rifle: A Tikka T3 lite stainless in .243 win. The plan is eventually to go to .260 rem, but I can use this as a platform to build off of and decide what I really want in a custom built. I do not reload yet, so what would be a good starting point for factory ammo? I also need to get some glass on it, I am leaning towards Leupold Mk4 3.5-10 or a Nighforce 3.5-15. Again, thank you all for sharing your wisdom on this board.
