    22-250

    A mate of mine - a hill sheep farmer - is looking for a 22-250 for fox control, so I'm just putting some feelers out for him.
    He wants something low maintenance, so synthetic & stainless I guess.
    Ideally a full set-up with scope and mod.

    Once he's sorted for a rifle he's also after a night vision unit, as a separate transaction.

    He will be along to the SD in person some time soon I think, but in the meantime if anyone's got anything suitable, I'll gladly put you in touch.

    He reckons he lost over 80 lambs to foxes this spring, caught them at it on trail cams set around the place, and now got his FAC.

    good to see you too, and some fine shooting. Given that we were out in the driving rain with gale force winds all three touching at 100 yards is quite special. Tikka accuracy, I hope the next one shoots as well....

    I don't know how much of it was me, how much was the rifle and how much was pure luck. Mostly the last two I reckon
    Either way it was good enough to convince my friend to buy the rifle, so everybody happy!
