Franchi Momentum Bolt Action Rifle - 243 Win :
The Momentum is designed to be an extension of the body, regardless of shooting position. The stock combines curvy lines and crisp checkering to yield an ideal hold in 5 frequently-used shooting positions, while the recessed swivel attachments save the left hand from recoil. The TSA recoil pad absorbs 50 percent of felt recoil and will not snag on your clothes. The action features the same blend of comfort and crispness, with its glass-smooth bolt operation and short 60-degree lift. The trigger is single stage, adjustable (2-4 lbs.) and incredibly crisp, enabling you to benefit from the tremendous accuracy potential of the free-floating barrel. The end is threaded under a knurled cover, making it easy to attach a variety of muzzle accessories.

The feature-rich Momentum makes its debut in 6 popular hunting calibers. The Momentum takes the same scope bases as the Remington model 700 (two-piece bases only)..

Revolutionary Stock
The stock of the Momentum is truly revolutionary. It combines raised curves and crisp checkering to offer the most ergonomic feel and positive hold in 5 frequently-used shooting positions. Most uniquely, the raised curves enable your supporting hand not only to grip the stock steadily, but also to exert forward or backward pressure if needed.


Easy Bolt Takedown
The one-piece bolt is spiral fluted and features 3 large-sized locking lugs for a rock-solid lockup - which translates into accuracy and reliability. The bolt is easily disassembled and has a short, 60-degree throw.


Hinged Floorplate
The Momentum sports a hinged floorplate magazine with the release located in the trigger-guard. To release the floorplate the catch must be fully depressed, which minimizes the chance of doing so accidentally.


Crisp Trigger & Two-Position Safety
With the two-position safety on, you can still operate the bolt: safely chamber a round or remove it from the chamber at the end of your hunt. The single-stage trigger is especially crisp and adjustable from 2 to 4 lbs.


TSA Recoil Pad
The proven TSA recoil pad absorbs 50 percent of felt recoil and will not snag on your clothes as you shoulder the rifle. Also, a checkered recess at the rear of the stock will comfortably accommodate your left hand as you shoot from a bench.


Free-Floating, Cold Hammer Forged Precision Barrel
The cold-hammer-forged, chrome-molybdenum, matte-finish barrel is entirely free-floating for maximum accuracy. The end is threaded under a knurled cover, making it easy to attach a variety of muzzle accessories

.243 Winchester

The .243 Winchester (6x52mm) is a popular sporting rifle cartridge. Initially designed as a varmint round, it may be used for wildlife and game such as coyote, blacktail deer, whitetail deer, mule deer, pronghorn, and wild hogs. It can also be used against larger game such as black bear or elk, but is sometimes said to be "too light" for such large game. Rounds of at least 90 grains are better suited for hunting larger game while rounds less than 90 grains are more suitable for varmints. The .243 is based on a necked down .308 cartridge case

Suggested Use

  • Predators
  • Small Game
  • Varmint
  • Deer (short range)

Performance

The .243 produces a velocity of 2,960 feet (902.21 m) per second with a 100-grain (6.6 gram) projectile from a 24-inch (610 mm) barrel. Commercially loaded .243 ammunition is available with bullet weight ranging from 55 grains (3.6 g) up to 115 grains (6.8 g). Twist rate of barrel is the major deciding factor in which bullets to use, 1:10 being the most popular as it is sufficient to stabilize up to 100-gr. bullets. However, for VLD (very low drag)-profile and bullets heavier than 100 grs., a 1:8 or 1:7 (for 115-gr. VLD bullets) is necessary.
