    Can you provide more details about the stock. I have never heard of a major john plaster sniper stock.

    Hi yes choate stock not my first choice but cheap out of the good old usa 82 dollors or 51 pounds + duty on eblag. i would have liked a mcmillian but so expensive.
    the rifle is not designed for stalking but range work and longrange foxing from a high seat or 4x4 as the weight is 16.5 lb.
    i have a sauer 202 left handed in 30/06 for deer and love it.cheers for the replys lads.
