Default Good Deal???

I went looking for a rifle, one my grown daughter could shoot, looking for something in .243 caliber.

Found a Remington Model 700 ADL in .243 at the local Wally World. It has a black synthetic stock, a Rem 3-9x40 variable scope, and the only thing I had to purchase was the swivels and sling. Cost - $418 + tax.

Was that a good deal? Talked to a local gun shop who said to take it - - -

Your thoughts??

Oh, BTW, zeroed on a range in the back yard. Took 9 rounds to march the point of impact from in the dirt to the center of the target. Changed targets and put three rounds touching and pulled a fourth an inch to the left using Winchester 100 grain soft points.

Sounds good to me.I'm a big fan of .243's for deer.Low recoil equals more practice and they put 'em down.I'm taking a Win. model 70 and a Ruger M77 in .243 to the range today.Our Buck season opens Monday after thanksgiving.I was picked in a lottery for a flintlock hunt for deer on a waterfowl management area.I've carried it for two seasons,have yet to take a deer with it.In the .243's I like the remington core-lokts

sounds like a very good deal to me. Great caliber choice for your daughter too.

Thanks guys for the response. Thought that pricetag was too good to pass up.

Taking it out this afternoon to see if it does what it's supposed to -- put meat in the freezer.
