Ive owned and shot many guns over the years. But I buy guns for two reasons usually: fun and defense. However ive been considering getting a rifle I could hunt with if the need arised( or necessity). The sister in law has what she calls a "remington .243 bolt gun" Which I have surmised is either a remington 700 in .243 or a remington 770 .243 sporter. I have no experience with hunting rifles so i'm looking for some input. She bought it new and has fired 40-50 rounds through it total. It's coming with a scope, which she thinks is a bushnel, but cant remember. She wants $150. Thanks for the input. Also does the .243 cartridge suck on anything but large varmints and small deer as ive read? She downed 4-5 deer with it she says.
