    How much do you want to pay? I'm looking at selling my Jongmans .223 with 2 barrels and supressor and a custom .243 built on a VZ33 action.

    Probably less than a two barrel jobbie and a custom . Looking at entry level at this stage , as will probably only get used bugger all .

    I use a budget Savage Axis, with the budget scope it came with. Will put 4 in 1.5 inches at 200 using budget H and F ammo. Yes it's light, flimsy and nasty, but it shoots. Only thing done was lighten the trigger. Easy to do, cut 1.5 coils off trigger, and it's down to about 2 lb

    Sing out if you want to hit the range with her @Munsey, so she can try out my 223 and 243 to see what she likes.
