    .243 starter pack. Very experienced!

    Browning XBolt Micro Hunter. This model has a slightly shorter pull and a 20" Barrel. It was the first one in the country and I've had it from new.

    Always shoots under a MOA and usually .75/.5
    Loves Targex 95 grn at 3040fps and 85 grn Interbonds at 3170.

    Its done some miles and shot a lot of stuff. Internals are in great condition.
    Barrel has worn blue as can be seen (where I hold it as a walking stick), scratched and worn base metal and some slight etching where the suppressor goes. Its all part of its right of passage.

    Use it as it is or do what I intended and cerekote the barrel. Its fired maybe 800 shots and still good for another 1500 probably although most of the shooting has been warm reloads.

    Safe, reliable, accurate.

    Comes complete with:

    Zeiss 3.5-10x44 Conquest with Z600 reticle Its the same age as the rifle and is sighted in for it. Works perfectly and if you find fault you are too damn picky.
    Good strong Warne rings and Weaver bases.

    DPT Suppressor (I've always used it minus one baffle to keep it handy. Works great. I might be able to find the baffle I haven't used.
    Dies
    Loaded ammo if collected
    Many projectiles

    Its all ready to go. Last deer shot was 2 weeks ago by a tyro at 318 yards. When you receive it you will be able to walk out the door and go hunting.

    Reason for selling? I use bigger calibers now and its just sitting here sulking.

    The whole package: $1,200 and you pay freight because you are getting a deal and part of my soul.

    By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it's raining in Sweden.

    How the hell am I supposed to know if it's raining in Sweden?

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    @Chop3r Yeah. I thought about keeping it for the Grandchildren but their Dad's have their own rifles to hand down. No need for me to have 5 rifles at my age.
    @nor-west yeah it appears to be good value. No need to put stuff up at silly prices. You are always a good seller too. I worked it out at 50% of retail value and $100 for the suppressor. Chucked in the dies and projectiles.

    Yeah. I also thought about doing a conversion to 6.5 Crede but on balance its too good a rifle to muck around with. Let someone else get some pleasure from it as a .243. I've had plenty.

    Looks experienced all right, bet it could go out on its own if it wanted to. Says Zeiss but looks Loopy, is it up fr a transplant?

    That Leupy is on another rifle now. The Zeiss is on it but not in the pics. I can post pics of it with the Zeiss if someone wants.
