Its a great all around medium game rifle. Not ideal for large deer, but many have fern taken with it.

I don't know the value. So here is a guess. $300 - $350

Yeah, that looks like a Model 70 alright. From what I can see it looks to be post 64. I would guess that it is worth around $400. The .243 is NO marginal cartridge and is good for all varmints as well as deer and black bear. Generally speaking, 80 grain bullets on down for varmints and 85 and up (with 90 to 100 grain being ideal) for deer.

Towboat, I don't know how large your deer get down there, but from what I've heard the deer up north of the border with me and usually on the larger side. That being said, just about ever one here uses a .243 for their deer rifle as its a good all rounder for varmint to deer. It's also the smallest legal caliber we can use here.

My first whitetail rifle was a 243 and even though I no longer have one I still say it is the ideal white tail round..
