RE: another 243 question

Just bought a Stevens 200 in 223 with a camo stock for $337 last weekend. I love the thing!! Pretty sure they have the Savage 110 action. I'd buy the 200 and spend the extra cash on my scope.

RE: 25-06 or 270 WSM

Out of the 2 you mentioned the 270 wsm would be a better all around gun. My vote would beto meet in the middle with a 270 win. as well.
