    My FFL gives me a free transfer after five that I have paid for. So I was able to put this together for under $400 out of pocket.

    This weekend I'll submit the Form 1 and have the barrel cut down to 10.5" after the stamp comes back next year. In the mean time, my daughter and I are going to slay deer and piggies with it.

    And it will be fun to hit steel with. I have a bunch of Hornady 208-grain A-MAX projectiles, some Barnes 110-grain and 130-grain TSX projectiles, and six pounds of AA-1680 powder.

    Sweet, I think you might've got the last one. They are out of stock now.

    Dang, that is too bad. It does not seem to be a bad rifle for the money.

    I have heard from friends that some Walmarts sell the Rugers at a discount some time, just to clear them out. A buddy has a 243 he picked up for his son. He needs to drop an optic on it, so he has not shot it yet.

    Iíve got multiple 243 and 7mm-08 rifles that my nieces and nephews use for whitetail. Theyíre both great calibers for kids. How do you like that Rugged Razor?

    It is a good can, I have a Rugged Surge in NFA jail.

    It usually lives on an 8.5" 300 BLK, and does a good job there.

    Thatís good to hear. My wife bought me a Razor for Christmas while they had a big promotion going so itíll be a while before I see it. I plan to swap it between a couple hunting rifles until I SBR a lower.

    Not bad at all. I was pretty pleased with how it shot the Magtech 123-grain supers, and the S&B 220-grain subs. I still need to get some data in the book for the Hornady 208-grain AMAX subs. That and the Barnes 110-grain TSX rounds are what I am planning on for hunting.

    The only thing that was disappointing was how the magazines were feeding - or rather, not feeding. I'm going to play with them a bit more, then call Ruger for some advice. Getting that first round out of a fully-loaded mag was problematical.

    But I'm going to lap the rings, remount the scope, and start working up some load data with a friend.

    It was quite a bit of fun to fire off a suppressed subsonic round, and listen to the projectile hit the dirt berm 100 yards downrange. We were also shooting a lot of suppressed .22, and the chillruns had a great time.

    .243 makes an excellent youth round for Whitetail.

    The only mistake I see with .243 is using too light a bullet. Nothing lighter than 90 grains for deer or antelope and it'll do you fine.
