i have been waiting a very long time for a 270 cal rifle and after waiting three months for a variation i was getting ready to forget about but then lady luck arrived in the form of my ticket back with my open 270 0n...
as im not going to use this rifle that often i did not want to go over the top on the price so i kept in low
i managed to find a BSA 270 up north and decided on that was the one
here she is
programs to take screenshots
now for her first trip.
before i had a play with it i really wanted to test the cal so after a few boxes of round and a good mess about i was happy to take her on a stalk..
i arrived at the farm for 4 o'clock am and watch over a few fields
a hour of that and nothing spotted a decided on a mooch and see if i came across anything.
it was not long before a spotted a buck in the field and made my way over . but when i got there ! nothing he had vanished. i thought i would sit and weight 10 minuets in the hope he would pop out---30 minuets passed and still nothing. never mind i though i will carry on and take a look around.. i walked around the hedge to find him no more than 50 yards away
he had not spotted me so i retreated behind the bush raised the gun to my sticks and sneaked back around the hedge. he was still there a littler further up.
i waited for my shot and then the bang rang out like a bomb lol it must have woke up the country lol the deer was down
i was over the moon wicked gun kicks like a donkey and a stunning first deer for it..
he was looked over and sorted there and then. what a stunner
