    Funding my insanity

    So made the mistake of looking through a vx5...in comparison to buying it outright it is cheap compared to a divorce so looking to flog some gear.
    Will start with my 222 and go from there.
    Pretty mint condition omark 44(sportco)
    MAE can
    Vortex diamondback 4-12x40 BDC
    Good little shooter with 50gr federal blue box, not consistent enough with PPU. Would be interesting to see how it goes with hornady ammo. No kick anyways but can reduced what there was and noise is very subdued now as well but sounds like a helluva crack with it off haha.
    Bore is good and has been rethreaded when i bought suppressor.
    Thinking $800 as upgraded scope and new can.
    If anyone is keen let me know and can send pics.
    Located AKL and am sure can post through HnF if need be.

    Pretty bloody tidy,unsure of twist or ronds but bore looks good to me and only shot 50gr slugs which go fine.

    All the best with it mate. I have just sighted in a VX5 3-15 and I think it's going to be a great scope.

    Very clear glass.

    Tracked beautifully during sight in.

    Very happy

    Cheers

    hey guys needs must and rifle is back up for sale. Need to fund a couple of things so bit of cash will help.
    Since my last post it has been on its first and last hunt.
    Shot a fallow spiker in the neck at 50m~ and the damage was incredible...forgot how well this calibre kills.
    Have not measured grouping but was hitting a small target comfortably at 100m the other day.
    Details and price remain the same
