    Got it off an online auction with the 10X Leuopold attached.
    Picked it up yesterday from the local FFL.

    Hope to shoot it at the range with family and friends as my go to range gun.

    I've never shot the 243, But if it shoots like the 308 you'll love it!

  5. Ive always loved the Winchester 88 and owned a few of em over the years. I have always believed that they were terribly underrated. Accurate as a bolt gun, light, fast handling, removable clip is a bonus, just an all around excellent rifle. Enjoy it; I know I would!! :)
