ole hunter seys my vote goes to the 243 . a very accurate round low recoil and lite to carry . mine is a LSA 55 model sako which has killed 1 or2 deer every year since about 1970 get quality even if it hurts , you will love it more every time it works.

I found an option on Weatherby's site that includes 3-9 x 42mm Redfield Revenge scope. It seems to be a good scope as well.

I also liked cmoutos' recommendation for the Browning A-Bolt Composite Stalker. The Browning BOSS feature really caught my attention, if anyone has feedback/experience with it I'd appreciate it as well.

Thanks again and I'll keep taking this feedback to research. Thanks!
Thats exactly what I was going to say!
