It's hard to beat the .243win. I started on a Remington 788 .243 (still have it) almost 20 years ago. My dad ended up putting a muzzle brake on it just before I got serious into rifle shooting. Mostly it was because he suffered a severe wreck that required an extensive neck surgery and he didn't want to miss the season lol. I shot that rifle until I was 16 and wanted a larger caliber, Remington 700 ADL .270win (still have that one also). With the .243, I never felt handicapped by the smaller caliber because it made you focus more on shot placement. I only wish I could remember the number of deer I dropped with that 788.
