Thanks to a tip from Mr. Fixit, I just became the proud owner of an XS7 in 243. I can't believe what you get for $225! A very smooth bolt and a nice trigger as well. Does anyone have any experience with the 243? It will be my double duty gun, coyotes and deer. I think I'm going to order a Cerakote kit from Brownells. Has anyone done this before? Seems like really good stuff. Thanks

Yeah, $225 is a great find. Never owned a .243 but I've had a couple of 6mmRem's, still have 1 in handgun form. 95gr Nosler's have work well for me.

He said Cerakote, not creosote, the black tar used on telephone poles. Way different product.

He may be on to something. It should keep the metal nice and tidy underneath the goop! ;D

Here in Texas the feral hogs like to rub on the telephone poles to get the creosote on their hair, so if you do decide to "creosote" your rifle, watch out for attacking hogs! ;D ;D ;D Creosote on a rifle, that's insanely funny.
