I was thinking about getting a Browing 243 for deer hunting. Do yall have any experience with this gun? Or any other suggestions

any model in particular? are you asking for opinions on the browning rifle, or on the 243 as a deer cartridge, or both?

i would personally get a savage over the browning. which model depends on whether u want a walking rifle weighing about 8-9lbs or a steady stand rifle about 10-12lbs. the 12bvss is an amazing rifle for the price. that would be a better buy than the browning.

the 243 is an awesome deer gun. its my first choice. the 95gr nosler b-tip or 95gr partition are the best deer bullets ive used. i will try out the swift scirrocco this summer, and i hope to find out how it performs on deer this fall.
