Take a look at the Browning semi's, they might have something close to what you want. Another option is a heavy barrelled Target/Varmint rifle from Olympic Arms or Bushmaster, there are several other makes also available. My Oly has a barrel nearly an inch around, and shoots ammo it likes into teeny little groups. Coyotes beware!

You might want to look at Armalite for a .243 semi-auto as well.

I believe DSA chambers a limited # of their FAL rifles in .243.

DSA does indeed chamber FAL's in .243, and .260.

Any AR-10 platform can be rebarrelled by a competent gunsmith, and you can get the contour/length you want.

Also, Carl at Accuracy Systems does some cool stuff with the 7400, to include bull barrels if I am not mistaken. Something worth checking out if you are like me and want the unique stuff.

I think the 22-250 is limited because of the mags it would take.

It is all a matter of how much you want to spend.
