    Nicely done. Just got mine cleared for use in the field. Can't wait to see what the better weather will bring.

    Hi kennyc
    I'm using Sierra 165gr soft points on a charge of V160 in new PPU brass.

    Hi Mark
    The K31 must have one of the best double stage triggers going and a smooth action. Could be the poor mans Blaser ! I may fit one of the quick detachable scope mounts that require no drilling or alterations to the rifle.

    I have one of those, returns to zero well,best suited to a 1" tube I tend towards a Simmons 1.5x5 WTC although I have in the past used a 30mm EB Sniper 20x42 for 1000 yrd shooting, although that is a bit of a neck ache to get a sight picture so I usually go for iron sights now.

    thanks, I keep meaning to try out the 150 Prohunters that I normally use, although I had thought about something a bit heavier as the rifle was designed around a 174grn bullet. I am finding Reloder 17 good for target use behind a 174 grn PPU bullet in what must now be 10x reloaded PPU brass

    Hi
    Have any of you K31 owners checked for a troop tag under the butt plate ? Mines has one and was just curious if any of you had one as well.

    My eyes aren't great with irons, so I fitted the S&K instamounts (from Brownells, including 1" rings) and a cheap pistol scope from Fox firearms, just in case it didn't work out. Very pleased with the results on the range, so will look for a better scope to hunt with.

    Regards
