I would really like to have a Savage Predator in 243, but it does not exist. I actually found a Remington 700 ADL at a good price, but the barrel has a super light taper which I am not excited about. So, short of building a custom rifle what else is out there?

Dam, with all the shooters here there must be some good info!

243 is very versitile. But tegun built can be be night a day different depending on its use. If you are looking for a long range paper puncher, 1-8 or 1-7 twist and load the 115 or 117 bullets or more of a game rifle around 100 grain bullets or varmit with the 70 grain. If you want to run the heavy bullets then you are almost going to have to go to a replacement barrel.

I have a bunch of heavy hitters and just need something to punch hogs and coyotes on the ranch. The 6MM has severed me well, but 243 is on my list of new calibers to try.
