Hi guys

After what seems like an age my rifle has finally arrived - im very pleased with it (understatement!)

Varberger .243 (s/h)
S&B 6x42 German - with reticle no. 2 (s/h)
Wildcat Predator 8 Moderator (new)

If I could post pics I would, but I don't know how!

It seems a well made rifle, good wood with a nice palm swell, nice smooth bolt, and the barrel is almost as new condition. The scope is in pretty good condition too, just a couple of ring marks.

Im surprised at how top heavy it is with the moderator on, I was set on not getting a bipod but now I might reconsider.

So, its off to the range to get zeroed - ive bought 3 types of 100g ammunition so we'll see what it likes best.

How sad am I - ive cleaned it twice already and ive only had it in my house for 3 hours!

Happy days.

Bubble wrap

Hiya Sikamalc

I'll try to leave the bubble wrap at home! - it won't be easy mind. I dread to think how sad and over protective i'd be with a new rifle!

Im really looking forward to my visit with you, what is it, 6 months? I might be able to shoot straight by then too!
