    Na just this Mark up which was done during my brief load development. This is obviously a ladder test.

    It's an honest moa rifle but more commonly 3/4

    Iíd agree a nice set up. Be good to know speeds and some proper group pictures as Iím a touch sceptical re Forbes and Kimber accuracy being so nice and light.
    Iím asking as Iím considering.
