buy an ar in 223 and you won't ever look back.
lol, my .204 is only for prarie dogs now....the AR in .223 was the best buy i have had...only i like my 30 round clips for them yotes!
you wont go wrong with that tikka t3 lite .243 I have one and love it, but it still sits at home more because I love my AR!!!
6.5/6.8spc it is a tack driver
I have shot a 220 Swift to good effect for 40 years.
If I was going to build a rifle that could buck some wind to complement a 22-250 or Swift, I would chamber one in 6.5/284.
You can send a 100gr bullet 3,400fps no problem.
You could also use it for most big game by loading Berger 140 gr bullets.
Here is a link to 6.5/284 info. http://www.6mmbr.com/SixFive284.html
Why noy maximize that 6.8 w/a 6mm offering and call it a 6mm WOA?
.243 is a great cartridge.
however, my group shoots match barrels (1:8 twist) on AR platforms. 69-77 grain factory loads will fight the wind well and are available off the shelf for $20/box of twenty rounds.
The semi-automatic has proven itself the most popular of the rifles we shoot b/c of the quick follow-up shot.
At 200 yards (your stated range), I don't see you needing a monster round.
Good luck! I'm sure whatever you decide on will provide much enjoyment.
Please quote your source for a 5 round mag limit, as I'm very possitive its 10 round limit. And if you owned mags of grater than 10 rounds before 01-01-00
your still good to go, although there still a few other rules to follow.
