    Forbes 20b 260Rem

    As above, in as new condition. Would come with 1" and 30mm rings, hard case, manuals etc
    Shoots 143 eldx's @ 2675fps (no pressure signs, can probably go faster) into 0.6-0.8" at 100m depending on how I'm shooting on the day.
    Can even include 50 loaded rounds of the above for cost.
    $2300 ono


    I've seen something else I like.

    Not threaded, factory 21" barrel, 3" box mag 1:8 twist, Timney trigger.

    I have one on hand, can take more if wanted. Whilst the rifle is lighter than a Sako Carbonlight it's extremely soft in the recoil department.

    I weight the 243 and it was 2.34kg iirc 260 would be less.

    What about a top of the line Giant Anthem paid $6800, four years old and in excellent condition. Wheels are aftermarket Stans lightweight racing.

    Nice @Timmay. I have a 2016 Stump Jumper 6 Fattie (B+). It's an absolute hoot to ride. Very forgiving, which it has to be with me on it.
    Would love a Forbes but the bolt needs to be on the other side.
