Good gun, but I would choose the .223 over the .243.

Cheaper ammo, and more fun to shoot. (no kick)


yeap

This if its used for fun/target shooting. If he wants to do some serious hunting the .243 is my choice.

You can hunt with that gun, but I prefer at least a .270 to shoot good sized deer.

I shoot a .308 when deer hunting. Varmint and everything else gets the AR 15.

A .308 sounds actually enticing and I'm looking for starting hunting rifle

I'm use to shooting a 12 gage shotgun, 7 mag, & .22 rifle

I want something more powerful than a .22 and kinda prefer a little bit of kick

Get the .308. It's a Nato round, and if things ever go to poo...there will be plenty of ammo.

Not to mention it shoots on a much flatter pattern than the other rifles out there.
