243 or 308?

I am going to buy a Mossberg 100atr from bass pro, but I can't decide if I want a 243 or 308 for decently long range shooting, probably max of 600-800 yards. I don't hand load and don't like to spend a lot on high end ammo, but I just want to know which round is best for shooting at least 2" groups beyond 100yards for a budget shooter.

Well "clemmer", you certainly present an interesting question.
If you take the time to read about the ballistics of the two cartridges that you named, you'll find that they're two different cats.
I would advise you to do some research on your own and then ask an intelligent question.
"nuff said??
Obviously you have not done the basics. Plain and simple.
Please don't waste the time of well meaning, experienced riflemen with inane questions.
