    Hi Scrun,

    I haven't put a round thru it yet. Its in .300 win mag and getting ammo seems to take a bit of time. As far as build quality is concerned, it's on a par with my Tikka T3 synthetic. Bolt operation is nice and smooth. I also prefer the "shot gun" style safety on the A-bolt compared to the catch on my Tikka.

    Once i get some ammo (hopefully sometime this week) and put some thru it, I'll let you know how i get on but it looks good so far.

    The only thing that i would consider a bad point is that the points to fix bases to for a scope are fixed so i cant move to scope back any further, which would be nice with such a long bolt throw in the .300, But other than that i'm happy with it.

    I'll let you know how i get on when i get to the range.

    atb,

    Dave

    I had a Browning A Bolt .270 for a good number of year's, never let me down and used it in all condition's.

    Wish i still had it to tell the truth.

    Hi Scrun,

    Finally managed to get some time and get down the the range to sight in my Eurobolt. Boss setting was 8.5 and ammo was 180gr Federals. Really happy with the results. It's a nice rifle to shoot, but you definately do need ear protection when using the Boss! Mine is chambered in .300win mag and with the muzzle break on is no more punchier than a .270.

    All in all a nice and accurate bit of kit. Pic of the targets are below. The target on the right has a low shot which is first shot clean barrel. The target on the left is after the scope was adjusted to 100 mtrs. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for that Dave. However events have overtaken and I bought a s/hSauer 6.5 a week ago. But taking the time out to let me know is appreciated
