I traded into this Savage Model 10, in .243 Win caliber. 22" sporter weight barrel with 1:9 twist rate. (I know my note next to the rifle says 21" barrel, but I was mistaken when I first measured from the barrel nut). Nice trigger, adjusted by the prior owner. Comes with a Tasco 3x-9x by 50mm scope (cheap, made in China, but it should work). This fat-bell scope has extra tall rings that put the center of the scope 2.2" above the bore. I expect to use this myself on some deer, hog, or coyote hunting, but primarily deer. And while I "would" use a .243 such as this to kill deer at long hunting ranges of up to 400 yards, if the gun proved itself accurate at that distance and I chose the right bullet that would expand when the velocity is down around 2100 or 2200 f.p.s. that far out, I ONLY ANTICIPATE using it in woods where my maximum distance shot between the trees and bushes would be about 100 yards. But I also got this rifle as a "loaner" to let a buddy use when I want to take somebody deer hunting but they don't have a suitable rifle. I have a friend in such a situation right now. He's got an AR-15 (old style Colt SP1 with a slow-twist barrel), and an AK-47, but no provisions for mounting a scope on either one. And he really could use a scope to improve his accuracy at even moderate ranges of 50-100 yards.
