    Used but good condition. One of the most accurate rifles I have owned. Shoots extremely well with Sierra 65gr game king and 75gr A max making it a good cheap deer rifle for a young person or anyone really. Shoots equally well with 55gr projectiles. Have shot it out to 550m on steel plates, great for sniping goats.

    Comes with Weaver base and Hardy suppressor. Scope and rings not included.

    After 500

    Cheers

    For the handloaders I'll add that the magazine is long and the throat is super short. You can seat your bullets to just touch the rifling which no doubt helps with it's accuracy, and you can chase the throat as it starts to wear so barrel life will probably be great. From memory, my accuracy loads were - 65gr Sierra, seated to just kiss the lands, ADI brass, CCI 450 and 26gr 2206h. Think it was doing 2950fps. And 75gr A max, seated the same, Geco brass, CCI 450, 24gr 2206h, doing 2860fps according to a lab radar.

    Cheers
