This is a no brainer for me. I have used the 243 exclusively for over 20 yrs. I have never lost a deer and all have piled up within 40 yrds max. I have even killed ( and I know i'm gonna hear it) Elk with it with the same results. Get a well constructed bullet put it where it belongs, realize the rounds limitations and you'll never regret buying a 243.The best thing about it is you can use it for groundhogs in spring and summer and become very proficient with your rifle.

You could try a Stevens in 243, same as Savage and it will be dead on accurate, less than $300. I would go for that before a single shot, tried a Handi rifle previously and wouldn't go that route again.
