I've got that feeling again! I just ordered 2 barrels & a forearm for my Apex from Carlos. I bought the .243 & the 7-08. Can't wait to get them scoped & out to the range! I've already got a box of Barnes Vortex .243/80grain.....hopefully they will be accurate. Should be a dandy hunting load for Whitetails!! Gonna try the same bullet in the 7-08 too. Already buying bullets & I don't even have the barrels lol!

The 7mm08 i hear is almost like a 270

I am gonna find out about the 7-08. I've been told it's actually close to my .260, which is nothing! The 243's are a blast to shoot & you can almost afford the ammo for them, LOL. The 2 reasons that I bought the .243 are ammo availability & no recoil Smile

Yeah, I've wanted something in this caliber for a while. Gonna be putting a Vortex Viper 3-9x40 on it and hope I can work out a good 300-yard grouping.

You'll love the .243, I just got my 22-250 scoped for the Apex, now it's the barrel breaking in prosses, that's a 2-2 1/2 prosses but well worth the time.
