Might use it for shooting a doe or two over here but my main goal is to get better at shooting. I have a range where I can practice at 3-4-500 yards. The ammo is a decent price in the states and it gives me a different feel than just shooting .22s. I hunted for a few years with a .223 killing 7 deer, two bucks and the rest does, all with one shot kills in the heart lung area. Longest retrieve was 60 yards. As you chaps say, minimal meat damage but it is limited in power.
Got the 527 with Mannlicher stock. About $700 U.S.
Stock pic, should be here this week.
