    ...another .284

    Since I see the Von Tempsky's .284 for sale I have decided to put mine up as I have been wanting to go back to a synthetic stock. (plus I had a Tikka before this and I miss it!)

    It is a Remington Mountain Rifle Short Action .284 Winchester.
    It has a Limbsaver recoil pad.
    It has 1" Talley Rings
    It has an extended mag box to fit the .284 rounds.
    It has a Gunworks Duralium Supressor. But I have never really used this as the rifle is so mild to shoot I have never needed it.

    I thought $1600 sounded fair, what do you think?

    No not particulary. It's just extra weight. The rifle shoots a 140gn Hornady Interbonds doing 3085, which has been really effective on animals and mild to shoot. So I'd stick with that load anyway.

    Why not just get a synthetic stock for it mate?
    Aren't they basically 700 action?

    Hi. Yes it is a 700 action @8pt Sika. But I don't want to wait ten months for a stug stock or spend a fortune on another carbon fibre stock. So if I buy the tikka I'll save some money.

    It's a 20" barrel @nor-west

    Nice set up Kudu. With those trophies already chalked up I surprised you're selling. Weight ? has stock been bedded ? & if so by whom ? what r your groupings like ?

    Hi Chainsaw. I don't know the weight and the bathroom scales are not that flash. But it's pretty light despite a laminated stock. The action has been bedded. I don't know by who as it was done when I got it, but everyone who has seen it has commented on what a good job it is. I don't know what it groups like. I sighted it in when I got the scope a couple of years ago, I loaded up 100 rounds and that's where it has stayed. I just go out and shoot animals with it. I fire the odd shot if I bump the scope or something, but generally I'm an animal shooter as opposed to a paper shooter......and generally what I aim at falls over!

    Why not get an original synthetic Mod 7 stock? I may know where one is or at least was.

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
