    I have one for sale but it is at the other end of the deer hunting spectrum - 300win mag.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Has to be asked why? Are you thinking to rebarrel your 7-08 to 243?

    Sell it and buy a 243, much cheaper.

    But 7-08 is far more useful and I'm guessing you're thinking about fallow. 120g is fine

    Yeah i agree, you'd be mad to change from 708 to 243, the old 243 is just so limited. If you want to achieve lower recoil, just download a 120gr, but you still have the option of stepping up to a heavier bullet and extend range if need be.
