    there are still bargains to be had !

    i was out with a mate this morning to help him zero his new (to him rifle) , he has'nt got all the gold in the world and his total kit for rifle , scope and mod come to just under £400 .

    the rifle is a brno with a mauser action in 270 win in bloody good nick for its age (late 1980`s at a guess), i gave him the mounts , a hawke scope and a pes mod and using my 140gn barnes tsx load produced a 3 shot group in .5 MOA . !

    certainly not to be sniffed at so all you lads who are new to stalking and think you need all the expencive kit , you bloody well dont !

    buy on a budget and spend the change on some guided stalking with one of the proffessionals on here , it will be money well spent .

    How right you are Lee!

    I popped on something similar on a post for an older Sako rifle for sale and basically suggested that because it was not in a recent test in a shooting magazine they are looked over.

    I know with experience and a bit of saving over the years we (including me) tend to upgrade (on paper at least) but to what benefit at the end of the day?

    Its good to indulge in accurate rifles, handloading perfect loads etc
    but at the end of the day you need to be able to stalk and shoot reliable 2 inch groups
    from any position. even a worn out .303 will do this if you can.
    most problems come from the scope and mounts not holding a zero.
    all rifle hunters need to try hunting with a bow, to appreciate what a rifle can do
