    Mighty Mouse: Bergara Takedown 45/70 DPT

    Time to make more room in the safe. Had loads of fun with this one. Scratched that big calibre itch. Hardly used. Less than a year old from new. Couple of goats to its name and some range time. Just one small rub mark where the suppressor bush touches the barrel.
    DPT did a great job taking it to 18in and a perfect fitting can.
    Drives FTX hand loads at 2300 or speer @ 2100. Developed some wicked Subsonics loads using Speer 400gr.

    Comes with a dies , bout 50 brass brass and some projectiles. Whole pack of Speer 400gr soft point and half of FTX. Probably have some loaded ammo too And I can chuck in some powder.

    Cost me +1450 all up.
    Looking for $990

    I have the stainless non takedown version. I love the thing, hand to carry round the farm when not really hunting, no scope, hole is big enough that even poorly placed shots seem to result in dead animal. Nothing I've had hits as hard up close. Good price as well.

    2 subs with 400gr Speer.

    This is 325 FTX. Both at 100m

    Just takes good technique. The factory FTX can hit the 300m 12in gong with the right holdover. I used a VX6 1-6x24. Excellent match for this.

    400 grains. Ouch. I shot a couple of deer with mine, only with the 325 factory loads. It hit harder than a run away train. The 400 g projectiles would bring a new meaning to hit hard!

    Id buy it if I had room!

    If I could swing this I would but my vari x 111 1.5-5x20 on it. Shame I just got my 284 as this is extremely tempting.

    Argh Jit ! Don't do this to me.....

    Is the stock symetrical on both sides, friendly for a kak-handed shooter ?

    Yes its an ambidextrous set up. I think you can even move the hammer extension to the other side.

    I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy the cartridge is to load and also how a mild load preforms.....cant wait till a deer is dopey enough to let me in close enough to try mine out on something other than target. a 43grn load of 2208 behind a 400ish grn projectile is as mild as a 2 1/2" .410 load.
