    FS CZ527 Hornet and Barnard F Open

    Hi

    Having a bit of a cleanout:

    CZ527 Hornet, blued, with 1" CZ scope mounts (scope not for sale).
    Shoots very well with Lil Gun & 40gr VMAXs (<<1moa)
    Stock has a few bits of varnish missing & the previous owner has bedded the action (I have not had it out of the stock but you can see the epoxy).
    Single set trigger. Approx 290 Win brass (34 loaded, 80 unfired, rest have had a couple of relaods)
    Redding type S dies (with 1 die button) which make very nice concentric rounds - these are really good dies...
    200 x 40gr VMAXs unopened

    Pretty sure I still have some lil gun which if I can find it, the lucky purchaser can have if they pick up the rifle.

    Say $1800 for the lot ??

    Barnard F class rifle
    Has about 800 rounds down the barrel, 6.5x284 match (tight neck), still shoots well (<0.5MOA)
    Barnard P action, Barnard trigger, 20 MOA rail, 30mm Burris Z rings with 20 MOA inserts, (note no scope for sale - just the rifle)
    Mastin stock + spacers
    Barnard bore guide
    TrueFlight barrel
    6.5x284 Redding S dies dies (Neck sizer and seater have been converted from another die body using (I believe) the chamber reamer, they look a bit rough but make good low-runout rounds, (comes with one sizer button), plus as new Redding body die.
    Brass - a couple of hundred fired (neck turned) brass (sorry don't know how many times - came with the rifle) & 1 box (100) new Lapua New brass (not neck turned yet).

    Pretty much everything you need to shoot F Open.

    May be able to scrounge up some 140 AMAXs for the lucky purchaser

    say $2650 for the lot ?

    Wish I didn't have to sell either of these but they don't get enough use and I have other projects on the go...

    No FAL/paperwork ........... no sale.


    Cheers.

    Try the NRANZ website - items for sale.
    Not sure if you need to be an NRANZ member to post. @ebf - he's a good bloke and shoots F/TR, so might know someone that could be looking for an F/O starter unit.
    Yours looks to be a 'walk up' starter outfit for a newbie - or someone wanting to get started in F/O, after trying something else in the NRA rule book.

    @saryn, most of the FO guys have gone away from 6.5x284 barrel burners to straight 284 7mm. pretty much all of the 7-mm 300 WSM have gone to 284 as well. having said that there is always a demand for P actions.

    your TF looks like a straight profile, so I assume plenty of knox form left ? what is the total length pls, I have a mate who is looking for a 6.5 barrel for a gong rifle.

    email secretary@nranz.org.nz, not sure if you have to be a current NRANZ member, Helen will be able to tell you or help you with a listing. alternatively contact Karori Rifle Club, most of the Welly FO guys are over there.

    or better yet, don't sell and come have a play when the season starts again in Sept :-)

    Presume you don't need an f endorsment for this? Is 'f' just a class for long range shooting?

    Excuse ignorant question but have been wondering a few times in the past.

    "F" was originally for Free Rifle, as in open class.

    They're all std A-Cat single shots

    Actually "F-Class" isn't "Free Rifle Class" !!!!
    It is named after the class' creator George “Farky” Farquharson.



    F-Class is a precision long distance target shooting sport, in which competitors shoot at targets between 300 and 900 meters, with the object to place shots as close to the center, or “Bull” as possible.

    It is a sport that was started in Canada, by the late George “Farky” Farquharson, after whom the sport is named. This sport involves using highly accurate single-shot centerfire rifles, high powered scopes and a means of steadying the rifle such as a bipod or pedestal rest. Participants shoot at paper bull’s eye targets at long distance, where the ability to read wind and other conditions determines success.
