    A cheap 308

    I'm after a Remington or Tikka in 308.
    Not wanting to spend much, it doesn't have to be flash looking, just has to group well enough for hunting out to 300m.

    I'm not in a huge rush as I'm currently in a cast.

    Only wanting to spend about $600. Or thereabouts.

    PM me if you have anything suitable.

    Open to different calibres as well.

    Depending on what "or thereabouts" means, a Tikka in 308 just might be yours.....

    Im after a hunting rifle. One a little smaller than a 375 H&H or 416 Taylor and 45/70. I don't really want to bruise the whole animal.

    I would get a 7mm08, 243 or 260 if one was the right price. or realistically any calibre similar.

    I have 30 cal stuff so thought it would be easier than having to buy new gear.

    Sorted.
    Have decided to finish the Grendal build first.
    No point having a project half done.

    Thanks for the offers.
    Will look at this again in a few months or so.

    My foots not so bad. They took a graft out of my hip this time which hurts somewhat when I move a certain way.
    As long as it fixes it I don't care. Pain in the short term is worth healing in the long term.
    Besides, I can save and load for when I'm fit and ready to go.

    Only downside is that there's no venison in the freezer.

    But never mind. Always when I get fit again there will be some.
