    223 Tikka / Suppressor / Vortex Scope / Full reloading kit.

    After a lot of thinking and weighing things up I have decided to sell my Varmint rig. Despite living in Central Otago I find almost all my shooting is with a .22 .
    I want to sell the above set up and get a .17HMR for the long stuff.
    I also don't enjoy reloading, it's been a great experience to learn to reload and satisfying with the awesome results but the repetition I find takes away any enjoyment for me.
    I also want to put some money towards a motorcycle I've been saving for.

    I will sell the whole rig / rifle / scope / rings/ suppressor / reloading kit as one unit if someone wants it or I can split it down.

    Rifle / Tikka T3, .223 cal. Older DPT suppressor that looks like a Gunworks one ( no baffle system ) . Trigger nice and light. In very good condition and has proved to be very very accurate with best group at 100 mtrs 10mm and best rabbit taken at 450 mtrs. I got this off Happy ( forum member ) and it's been awesome. Thanks Happy, the rifles been awesome.

    Scope / Vortex Viper 6.5 -20 x 50 with BDC recticle , brought brand new 4 months ago, perfect condition. Has original scope caps, flip up caps and all packaging and manuals. Dial able, forever warranty. Brilliant bit of kit. Was $925 new.
    Sitting in brand new steel 30mm Warne rings. Rings can go with the scope or the rifle for an extra cost.

    Reloading kit. Lee challenger press, Lee delux 223 dies. Hornady beam scales , trickler, Lee XR hand primers. Tray, funnel, powder scoops, some primers and some 40 gr Vmax projectiles.
    100 ADI brass. 50 brand new and unfired, 50 fired once. Probably more odds and ends I have forgot to mention

    If anyone is interested please PM me. I am still working out prices but I am not greedy or unrealistic.
    Photo's can be arranged.
    I really don't want to post the rifle if I don't have to and I am more than happy to travel to meet up at a half way point for any SI guys. If I have to I will ship . Scope and reloading gear is no problem to post.
    Feel free to ask questions guys. I really look after my gear ,this set up would make someone very happy .

    It's a good accurate gun. I only sold it as got offered a brand new unused one that was too cheap to turn down.
    This rifle passed my accuracy test. Plenty don't but I don't sell those ones here !!
