    tactical rifle in 243

    I am looking for some suggestions for a tactical rig in 243. I would like to get something that either has a mcmillan stock or is easily upgradable one. I was thinking or maybe a savage 12bvss and throw a mcmillan on it later. Does anyone know if they make a 700 police in 243?

    Your best bet may be to have LOSOK or another company build you an entry level .243 on a Savage/Stevens action, you would end up with a fine shooter at an affordable cost, that will be an excellent shooter at not much more than a stock LE model rifle.

    Run the numbers, you will be surprised.

    Bell and Carlson has a new replacement stock for the Savage Short Actions, it is the varmint/target/tactical Medalist model for the 10, 11, 12 series rifles.

    It a nice looking stock that you won't have to wait 5 month to get.

    Just my 2 cents

    Here's a pic of a Stevens with a varmint contour stainless ER Shaw barrel in .243 Win, and the afore mentioned B&C Target Medalist stock.

    Yes, that's the one.At home , I'm on dail up, so sometimes the speed isn't enough to bring everything up.I'll fix it in my post.Sorry for the mess-up. I guess a Nam era AR upper doesn't much look like a Savage bolt gun.

    tactical rifle in 243

    I have a 700 VLS in 243 WIN and i love it. I like the rifle so much that when the first one was stolen i bought a new one. Im still breaking the tube in but so far the groups are really good. I just ordered a scope for it from Mel and i cannot wait to see what it can do then. The rifle that was stolen was shooting great groups at 500 yards and the only thing i had done to that rifle was a trigger job and that was with factory ammo.

    I too had a favorite Remington 700/ Leupold Vari-x II stolen. It really burns my cheese to know that some jerk is out there hunting with my favorite .300 Mag.He probably got it for a hundred bucks worth of crack. I had a replacement barrel for it , as the barrel was worn out. I hope he misses lots of deer with it.

    How did he get your rifle? Ive never had a rifle stolen, but someone pulled into my driveway while I was sleeping and pulled out with my trailer and fourwheeler on it. Atleast I had it insured and got a nicer one.

    I live in a mobile home in a rural area, so it's nothing to break in and take something.It was probably a young adult, possibly someone I know.Most of my rifles were in a couple gun safes, but during hunting season, I leave one or two where I can get to them readily.Nothing else was stolen, so I have an idea that whoever took it had a place for it to go,and a desparate need for cash.Although it was replaced, I really liked that rifle. I killed many deer with it, and knew it inside out. I still don't have a rifle I'm quite so comfortable with.

    I believe they make a 700 SPS Varmint in 243 Win. Around here they are runniing 475-500 + tax. You could get an HS Precision for about 250 or so or find one on eBay used for a bit less then you basically have a 700P in .243 win.
