Alright, so, the ex doesn't want to sell me my gun. *Rolleyes and a note to self to get stuff in MY name when it's mine* So, I'm thinking about getting something different. I loved that gun, but I know that if I get something that is the same model and all of that, and it doesn't work quite as well, I'll always be dissappointed. So, some of the issues that I had with the .243 were that I could not shoot anything through brush, and I need something that will kill stuff as large as bear and possibly elk. I like the fact that the .243 was accurate to the point that *I* could split bullet holes at 100yds. I also liked that it didn't have any kick, so I could shoot it all day. Now, I'd probably end up with a youth model of whatever I get, because I'm 5'5 and 160lbs, and that's certainly NOT muscle, lol. Any suggestions?
