I’m not sure what the model is, but it felt right, sorta choosing a new dog. Short barrel, synthetic stock, think it’s a new model

If it's the 783 you might want to have a look as some forum threads.

.243 is a sensible choice mate and will fit in the middle there somewhere.
Long range rabbits, foxes and cats no worries at all.

Always fancied a .243 myself. Maybe one day.

Blade racer, if it is, I’ll check. But with the limited I have to get out, it’ll be be lucky to get 50 rounds through it in a yaer

If it’s half as good as my 204, I’ll be a very happy old man

Also a good choice. Thanks for setting me straight there Tassietiger.

Ya mean something like "the .223 is the female friendly version of the .243"

Or maybe "theres nothing wrong with the .223 ... my missus loves it""

Nice mate. I am in the exact same boat.
I too must have a manbun.

Yeah, the 6.5 is lovely to shoot, I whacked an aftermarket recoil pad on (its a Tikka CTR) and the recoil is about the same as my 223 Lite , the only issue I found after taking it for a walk on Sat was that it is not a suitable calibre for meat hunting rabbits and the oversize bolt lug on the CTR tended to get caught up in my pack webbing but I will switch another sling onto it and I think that will solve the problem.

Nice bit of kit mate by the sounds of it. Never had the chance for a shot out of a CTR, but would like to one day. I have a Tikka .223 and rate it highly. Would buy another Tikka in a heartbeat. My Creedmoor is a Sako, only the A7, not the really expensive one. Nevertheless it’s a Sako and it shoots nicely.

In the words to the person who bought my 243 - lot of extra powder, lot more noise..exact Calibre for those that can’t get a 223 on target lol
