    A top calibre that people dont realise how good they are...204 is all the rage often these days,try putting a 60gr pill in one though.
    I love my swift.

    Top choice Andrew, a fantastic cartridge. It took me 9 months to find my latest Swift. If you can find a good donor action don't discount a re barrel. However long it takes it will be well worth the wait.

    +1 WITH JEFFREYL-you can then choose your own twist barrel and shooting something like the 75grain a max which has a particularly good BC for a 22 projectile.I've done 2 semi custom jobs along these lines and the results have been great.good luck with your search.a.t.b.Richard.

    Hi Andrew, my mate was selling one through blue fox glade (Chumleigh). It's a custom Remington action, fairly new new barrel on it. Not sure if it's been sold but can vouch for it's accuracy.

    Good luck with the search.
