Thread: A rabbiting setup

  1. #1

    A rabbiting setup

    Was thinking about this the ultimate rabbiting setup mine would be as follows
    A 17 hornet built on a anschutz 22hornet action
    24 inch krieger varmint barrell
    Sonic 45 mod
    macmillan ultra light stock
    Swarovski z6i 5-25x50 fitted with ballistic turrets

    feel free to move this if its in the wrong section. It think the detail on the scope are right feel free to correct me if they are not.
    finally just want to know if you were to build a setup what would it be in a calibre no larger than a hornet

    bolt action, sako or CZ

    +1 for the CZ but I prefer my semi-autos.
    Having said I have found them not to be quite as accurate as the bolt-action models although more than adequate

    Um.. have to wonder why you'd go beyond a .22LR?

    Crikey! this is some pipe dream. Firstly if you wanted the rabbits forget the 17Hornet, it blows them apart. 22LR or 17HMR ideal for rabbits and as far as the scope goes I've used nothing more than a Hawke for donkeys years as the vast majority of shots are at less than 75 yards.
    I will go away and work out how many rabbits I would have to shoot to pay for that lot, particularly with the price of 17Hornet ammo.

    That would do nicely, though I could add a BSA as that's what I've used for years and it's still way more accurate than me.

    Magtech 7022 .22lr semi-auto with a 3-9x40 Marchwood scope on top fitted with a torch from amazon.
    Total Cost of above is bout 120 quid.
    Job done

    If ammo cost and meat damage were no concern....

    BAT repeater in 20 Prac/Tac
    22" Krieger barrel
    Mac A3/A5 stock
    Jewell Trigger
    Schmidt 3-27 x56

    Probably overkill but a good way to blow an imaginary 6 grand!
