To be frank for hunting in thick woods a well made slug gun is 10x better than a 243. Broom straw grass will send a 243 five feet off target. This is one time you are so far off base you lost a lot of credibility with me.

You killed a deer so that make you an expert. .
Did i claim to be an expert? No. Then sit down and stop bragging.
Yes he said he likes the 30-06. It is a fantastic round. I own a rifle in -06 and not 243.
A 243 hitting a straw of grasss goes 5ft off target? Really? No it does not.
A 243 is not a woman's rifle. Elk have been taken with the 243. It is a great hunting round.
For under 150 yards like the op is talking about. A 30-06 is simply unnecessary. A 30-06 will not go through a bush and all of it's 1/8in twigs. 1/8 twig will deflect a 30-06 enough to screw up your shot. Will an -06 hit harder? Of course it will. But it is not needed. The op actually just said he always wanted a 243. And that he wanted a handi rifle. I suggested them to reaffirm his decision.
I have read some your other stuff and you never earned any credibility. All of your posts are degrading and "my way is the only way".
I hope you have a nice day mister crow

Sorry to take so long to respond-It was a safari grade Belgium .300 WM with a good bore but the stock/finish was rough and it had the BOSS muzzle break. The BAR is a fairly common gun here in NC and I doubt I could have made much on the gun and I despise a muzzle break.

Hey, I'm a woman and there are several women on here. I can assure you I can handle any rifle you can handle.

Alright guys lets keep it friendly lol yes I do want a 243 handi rifle and someday I will get one but right now im really thinking hard about the browning x-bolt micro hunter in 300 wsm with a 3-9x40 scope witch gives me the best of both worlds I can go from pretty thick woods and be able to put a low power 180 grain bullet thru both shoulders and drop them and use a full power load for open country were I can take shots out to 200 -300yrds witch is my limit and now my round is in its comfort zone with me

The 300 wsm in my mind is a "do it all" kinda round. It is my go to rifle and I love it. You won't go wrong with that choice. Accurate as can be in my tikka, im sure the Browning will be as well. Although I've never shot at anything bigger than elk with it, I would feel fine if I wanted to. Mine shoots the fusions extremely well (which is great cause they are cheap).

Nice to see someone likes the short mags how is the recoil in a light weight gun

Recoil is there, but not too bad. I really don't notice a difference between my 300 wsm and my brothers 30-06 out of the same rifle. Make sure you get a limbsaver recoil pad. It makes a big difference. Once you shoot it a bit, you will realize why I love the round so much. You will find yourself wanting to shoot further too if you have any where to try it.
