    Wow that's a collection

    I did think I'll post a pic of mine together but after seeing yours I feel a little inadequate now with just the Mauser m03 6.5 and Sako .22LR hehe

    My BBF has also finished the season on top.

    However with a few months to go, the drilling is going to be used. The 7mm and 12 Bore for every conceivable occasion.

All 4 are capable of 1/4" groups, even the factory barrelled CTR.
    Another reason to go all same cal and especially 308 is that we develop stocks and if one always uses the same cartridge one can compare recoil behaviour and accuracy issues.
    Since a few weeks we are testing the T3xCTR that had no work done to it apart from attaching an aftermarket stock vs a full Custom Lilja barrelled T3 that was bedded in the aftermarket stock, (the two tactical rifles in the picture). Although muzzle velocity is way lower on the CTR they both shoot very similar groups. Shot the CTR out to 900m and getting very good hits. All shooting with factory Hornady 168 match ammo.
    The old Sako was always a 308, she has been in our family since the early seventies. In the meantime a second life with new barrel etc. The Mauser needed to be a 308 to prove also an old Mauser action can be accurate with a good barrel. Shot many deer with her.


    FGYT,
    love the paint work on the 22
