    Forbes 308 & reloading gear

    Forbes 308 19" Threaded 1/2-20

    Fantastic rifles, Im only selling as I have gone to the calibre I was looking for in the beginning (same rifle though). 7mmsaum uses his with the heavy projectiles to great success, I only tried 110 TTSX which shot .4" once I sorted the neck tension out. The trigger is hands down the best I have ever used (Timney) and the stock fit is PERFECT, whilst its a light weight rifle they haven't gimped the stock.
    Serial number "0021"

    Overall great condition, slight scratches on barrel. Comes with case, 1" rings and manual etc. No can or scope.

    $2300 ONO

    @Timmay
    I'll take the cases Tim.
    Any chance you'd chuck the Hornady 308 modded case in with this lot?
