I think a Remington 700 in .243 is a good choice.  Whether or not you get the bull barrel should be determined by how much you plan to hike, how good shape you are in, and how much weight you want to carry...  Here's the question:  Will you look at a ridge and think to yourself "I'll bet that would be a good place to go, but I don't want to lug this thing all the way up there."...?  If you think you may do that, then just get the standard barrel...
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

.243 hands down love it for yotes! Mine is a sythethic with fluted heavy barrel model 70.  It is heavy but just man up and when I switch to my lighter deer rifle it seems so light and I am ready to go :twocents:

I'm guessing from the lack of response ball ammo must be legal... I also looked for it in the regs... but i think 30-06 ball isn't gona leave to many wounded yotes limping around....

yeah  there has been no modern firearm ammo restrictions about type of bullet so i am sure you could use it but as far as killing game clean i would not use them on anything but small game.
