A friend's son bagged his first deer this year using a borrowed Rem 700 in .243 and fell in love with the cartridge. He had tried 30-30 and 30.06 but didn't like the recoil.
He really likes the idea of a lever gun though and would like to find one in .243 and asked me for a suggestion. I know squat about lever guns on the market (the only one I own is a 30-30 Marlin bought in the 70's).
Due to limited funds, I suspect he's not looking at top end gear.
Any suggestions on who makes a good quality entry level lever gun in .243 would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance for your help.
