    223 M85 Zastava

    Pretty little rifle with a nice leather sling and a 3-9x32 Backcountry scope.

    Will chuck in a 50rd box of ADI 62gn fmj if local, doesn't overly like it though, have put a box of American White tail 55gn through and it was moa, so will likely develop ok with 55gn or lighter.
    $700 and freight.

    I assume it also has the single set trigger? Most of the M85's do, lovely rifles

    Should handle up to 64 grain bullets, (1:10 twist) mine shoots the sierra sp fine, but my go to is the 55 sp. The adi projectiles have a bit of a reputation for so so performance. The stocks on the wooden ones like yours are far nicer than the plastic version. Good value for someone.
