Load development done for:
60gr Hornady Soft Points/Partitions (lovely roe round)
Shoots 1/2" when I take my time!
has accounted for many foxes and roe and is a joy to shoot.
safety is a bit stiff to push on, comes off smoothly without a click though
barrel has some pitting, always has done since i got it, clearly makes no difference to accuracy, the above group are recent and I shot a similar group a few days ago to test zero.
Bolt is not the smoothest but that's a mini mauser action for you.
cycles and feeds just fine
compared to the BRNO fox's out there for sale this is in much better condition, cheaper and a proven shooter, (test firing welcome)
Perfect donor for a rebarrel in something exotic
best be quick before I change my mind!
am beginning to regret even thinking about it!
