Savage 243

6 posts in this topic

I have a friend who is offering me his savage 243 model 11 FXP3 with a P.O.S. scope on it for about 270 bucks. It has the accutrigger and an internal magazine. anyone have this particular rifle and how do you like it? He got it at fleet farm 2 years ago and has not put that many pills down it. Thanks for the help

Good gun. Fun to shoot and accurate. 270.00 is a reasonable price if you can afford it, buy it.

I'll second that one. Savage makes a great gun for the money. Normally accurate, easy to use, and the .243 is a good caliber for deer & varmints as well. I'd say go for it, if you haven't already

Done and Done, I just need to find some 58 grain vmax pills to load up for it. Found some Moly coated 58's but not the regular ones, YET!

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
