One question, does anybody know a respectable seller where I can buy .243 ammo online? Im looking for a good deal if I buy in Bulk.  I tried Cabelas but they did not have any in Bulk.

Any suggestions here ??  (Yes, Im expecting a lot of target shooting and hunting with my new Zeiss).

Might try Georgia Arms for .243 bulk ammo. Not sure how many rounds your looking for, but I'm sure they can help you.
 
 
I've used GA ammo for a few years now and have been VERY satisfied with service and ammo quality.
 
Nice rifle, BTW!! Thunbs Up

Well, here is a little review as some of you requested. I tested the scope/rifle today. Weather was windy and occational snow showers so it made things interesting. Overall the Im happy with the scope. It´s very clear, the Z plex fits my taste and its easy to fine tune the scope. The magnification could perhaps be a little bigger for this rifle, my Sako is capable of much longer shots with precision. Magnification it only 9 times but with the ranges I´ll be shooting (ca 200 meters as pictured) and exceptional brightness it gets the job done with flying colors.
 
 
The verdict:  For shooters with limited budget, this is your chance to get professional equipment without breaking the bank. This scope has very good optics that open doors to shoot in low light/bad weather.

Zeiss was a good choice, they have better glass than the Bushies.

Here is a little update on my Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40mm (Zplex) to thank you for helping me choose that scope (on a 500$ budget). It was put to a proper low-light-test recently in freezing temperatures during a fox hunt in the night hours. The ground was partly snow covered and there where endless shadows and dark spots. After few hours in the dark my eyes could hardly make out the tricky stage in front of me so I had to rely on the Zeiss. What I could not see with my bare eyes became clear through these amazing optics. And surely enough a fox walked into my sight after some (freezing) hours. This proved to me forever that the biggest thing about scope is not mega zoom or other "hot" features but a proper quality optics. Its about the glass. I wonder how much better I can see with 50mm Zeiss or Leupold? Maybe one day I will own one. But this 40mm Zeiss is very basic and very awesome.
 
Ive seen cheaper scopes that work fine but in situation like this proper optics make all the difference. It was money well spent. Thanks guys.
