Looking for a 243 or 243 wssm with a bull barrel, to shoot at the range, coyotes, varmits ect...

What options do I have?
My research found a browning, Remington and savage.
I would really like a tikka varminter in 243 but can't find one

The Remington 700 is a great choice but dont overlook the Howas. I have a couple of them and they outshoot my remingtons out of the box.

The 243 WSSM is a defunct cartridge I would pass on this one, yeah there are a few AR's chambered for it but it is a has been. check out what weatherby offers in there Varmint model and their TTR model same gun just different stock, more Tac looking also if you down load their new 2012 catalog they offer a new version of both. Real nice and no mods necessary. .99 MOA guaranteed and adjustable triggers,Aluminum bedded actions, Heavy barrels, ready to rock........www.weatherby.com

I'm really leaning towards the Savage Model 12 VLP DBM
thats a nice looking rifle and all reviews I've read have been very positive

Cooper. They are insanely accurate.

Savage, definitely worth the money and cheaper than the 700 too. Shoots great right out of the box. If you want to spend twice as much then you can go the 700 route with add-ons.

I have a Ruger M77, .243, with a bull barrel. Have a Nikon scope on it...great rifle. Havent worked up any handloads for it yet but using winchester silvertips or old box of PMC, it putz three rounds in a dime size grouping. Know u didnt mention Ruger...but it's a great shooting rifle.

Howa offers a Model 1500 with a 24" bull barrel that you can pick up for $399.

.243 is the best of the best in an all around caliber when it comes to squirrel all the way to deer

You cant handle what a 55 grain pill from a 243 shell does to a squirrel :)
