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

Ya mean something like "the .223 is the female friendly version of the .243"
:o :lol: :drinks:

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
