Good evening all.
With FAC in hand now, I am decided on buying a Blaser R8 in 6.5X55, but as a new owner I need some extra help please. I have a few ideas on what I need, but would value any specific help and guidance from existing owners.
One shop is selling the R8 at a keen price, bundled with a blaser saddle mount. I have an S&B 3-12X50 Zenith already. Is this a good mount choice for the S&B? Do I need to specify a particluar variant?
I am considering an A-Tec Maxim moderator.
I have gleaned that I should buy a Niggeloh sling. Is this a universal item or am I looking for a specific one?
Now the big one; which factory ammo? I will be shooting muntjac and fallow and will meet either on any given stalk. Reading posts on here, 120gn seems to have a lot of supporters. I will admit to finding the subject of ammunition choice pretty bewildering. So many strong opinions . Norma BTs?
I would be grateful for any constructive advice. Cheers.
