I love the .243 but does anyone make in semi ?

BAR is probably one of your best options. I know they used to make Remington 7400 Woodsman in .243. You could also do an AR build from DPMS, but you might be waiting quite a while to get all the parts you need to assemble.

The first thing that struck me is why do you want a semi? They’re not commonly as accurate. They won’t lock up as tight. They also need shorter type rounds so they feed properly. Most commercial rounds actually are too short because of this so it might not be a concern but you can’t get the most out of a round from a semi. You’d be amazed how accuracy changes even 3-5 thousands of an inch. Mic your hair. It’s about .003
A shorter bullet often yaws into the barrel. Any rifle round is to me anyhow a one shot type weapon. If there was a sensitivity problem a .243 alone should be ok. 
Not discouraging you just a FYI

I have a couple of the newer Browning BAR Shorttrac rifles in .308. I have always liked the idea of one in .243 as well. My .308’s are every bit as accurate as the Browning bolt guns I have in the same caliber. I can’t speak to other models or brands (besides the AR designs that also are very accurate) but I really like mine for hunting.
