I have just had a 223 put on my ticket and was looking for some opinions.
I am after a 223 for foxing, it will mostly be used with a night vision on the scope mainly from a static position in a baited area or from the 4x4 using the night vision or lamp.
I am looking for something with a shortish barrel because this will make life easier shooting from the truck.
I have looked at and also used a mates tikka lite and found it a nice rifle to shoot and am seriously considering this one.
I have also seen advertised a steyr scout, i did have a look at one of these a few months ago and liked it but can't remember the weight of it compared to the tikka lite. No gun shops locally have one of these in stock for me to compare them next to each other, I do like the idea of the built in bi pod and magazine holder, but is that all you are paying the extra for?
Also what are the triggers like on the steyr?
Do you think I should go for the tikka lite or the steyr scout?
Opinions or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as long as it has a synthetic stock.
