Hi. I've recently put in for a .223 slot with my FAC renewal and would appreciate views on this rifle and specifically experience of owners with the combination of Bavarian stock shape (I've never owned a rifle with this type of stock) and its compatibility with various sized scopes bearing in mind the intended use. I've also read that the bolt handle doesn't leave much room for clearance with some scopes. I wouldn't want to take an angle grinder to a pretty rifle like this.
Use will mainly be medium range (100-150 yds: my definition (possibly not yours ) and what I'm currently comfortable with) on fox, rabbits, crows.
I already have .22LR, .243 and 30-06 plus various shotguns so feel this could fill a relatively small gap in my battery.
