I picked up the BSA Hunter 30-06 from the RFD today and I'm well chuffed!! Thanks a million to Sikadog!
This is a pic just after getting it and I'll post some more when I get a bit more time at home.
I couldn't resist a shot so nipped to my perm and let a round go and crikey it don't half make a loud bang!! And being a nice light rifle kicks a wee bit too!!
Only rounds the rfd had were Hornady 150gr ballistic tip so bought a box to get accustomed to it. If it groups well are these a recognised round for all deer types? Ammo types is something more I need to learn about and I guess it depends what type of deer you're shooting??
Anyone know much about the rifle model itself?
What's the best way to clean the bolt up as I was going to give it a once over from the off? I like to familiarise meself with my rifles as soon as I get them.
When I get it screwcut would it be best to take off the front sight and shorten the barrel? Or would this affect accuracy? It does seem a shame to change it coz I quite like it as it is!
What do you think?
