    Just thought I would post a couple of pics of this I picked up yesterday!
    Cant wait to get it zeroed in today and get out. I am very pleased with it and very impressed with the build quality.

    What model scope is it mate ?

    Looks a brill setup How much the rifle set you back ?
    n how much for the scope ?

    Im hoping to pick up a similar setup and book some stalking Think I'll have to do my DSC first though before my FEO give it to me lol

    Why you choose 308 ?

    Bigthug, sorry to answer on Bordersman's behalf, but I would say the scope is a Swaro 8x50 by the proportions of it. Just about the perfect stalking scope in my opinion, but i am biased.

    If the rifle, mod and scope were all bought new, and they look like it, I doubt there was any change out of 2 grand.

    Nice set up Steve, I am a big Sako fan. I use the 123grn sako factory load in my 75 at the moment and it is an accurate and effective round but I would not use it on a boar. You have probably already thought of this but I just thought that I would mention it. Best wishes, JC

    Hi Guys

    Its 308 so I can use it on our local boar down here in east sussex.
    The 123 sako' s shot 1" groups so Im happy with that..
    The scope is 8x56 which I luckily had agreed in Chris Potters before the price increases.
    There was no change from 2k!!! But well worth it I wouldnt go any other rifle now..
    123 wont be used on the boar though got something much bigger for those monsters!!

    Regards All Steve

    I like the finish on that moderator. What make/model is it? Nice rifle by the way. I've got one just like it on order in 6.5x55. The wait's killing me.
