1. For reasons unknown to us at SCC, it seems that SCC members who are AT&T users experience issues with emails and personal messages when using our forum. This is not unique to SCC and several other internet sites are reporting the same issues. Todo10, the company who helps us with the forum and hosting, have file a complaint with AT&T but we are not convinced AT&T will do anything about it. The only way around this is to register and use another email address not connected to AT&T. We are sorry for any inconveniences this might cause! Please check this link for more info: https://forums.att.com/t5/AT-T-Internet-Email-Security/Blocked-Domain-Email-or-IP-address-Questions-and-Discussion/td-p/4961060/page/28 More info will come when we know more! With kind regards Jim aka L61R

    I took my .243 Finnwolf to the range today. I bought come Federal Fusion 95 grain cuz it was so cheap. I got one half inch group and one three eights group at 100 yds with the 6x Nickel scope so I called it a day. The gun is near mint but it is a shooter. I won't hunt with it but I will take it to the range every now and then. I know that the Finnwolf was chambered on 243 and 308. I have been told that the 243 chambering is rare. Is this true? Anyone know the numbers?

    Lou - sounds like you have a winner - I do not think I would say a 243 version is more rare than the 308 version. The 308 normally commands more money. Some collectors will pay a premium for the earlier guns with a 4 shot magazine, also if the barrel is marked as BOFORS, and again if there are no import marks on the underside of the barrel. There are also the SCA and Custer collector guns that were manufactured typically bringing the higher dollar value. I personally have seen
    more 243's than I have 308's in my travels but that is just me.

    Thanks for the reply. This gun does have the 4 shot mag,The serial number is 1709 but is not marked Bofors and I don't see any import marks.
