I've been going through some gun acquisitions myself lately - gotta love this life! There are obviously a lot of good options out there but between the two you listed,I would go with the .243 for plinking. Also, do what Bob said and get a brake on it. Not that the recoil without will kill you, it's just so much more fun with one.

I had a 243 barrel once. It was fairly pleasant to shoot even without a brake and plenty accurate with lighter bullets. Probably would have made a great coyote gun if I hadn't sold it.

Here?s my question. I also have a stainless Encore pistol frame and am curious if I should order a 308 Winchester or 243 Winchester barrel. Not for hunting purposes, just plain fun plinking and enjoyment. How?s the recoil on the 308? Thoughts and opinions are more than welcome.


I shoot the Encore with a .30-06 barrel. The recoil will wake you up but it is still manageable. Why not go for both? One to hunt deer & up with and one for varmints. If you get the .308 you might want to look at handloads with the Barnes 130 gr. TSX. That is what I am running and it helps the recoil quite a bit.
