    Remington .284 Win

    I can't resist buying a new toy. So with regret I am just putting my current one out there to see if anyone wants it. The .284 has been an awesome calibre and really does the bizzo on animals. It is also quite mild shooting.(Before I rebarreled it, it was a .284 as well.)

    It is a Remington 700 SA with a Laminated stock.(Currently it is covered by a Camo pattern Gunskin on it)
    It has a BRAND NEW fluted Hardy Barrel at 22" fitted by SSRNZ
    It has a limbsaver recoil pad.
    Extended magazine.
    I have Hornady custom dies to go with it.
    130 (Approx) Mix of new and once fired brass
    I will also have quite a few 139gn Hornady Interbonds and quite a lot of RL17 to go with it.

    I do not have any photos at the moment as I have only just got it back from SSRNZ and have sent it off to someone to develop a load for it for me. However I may be able to get a photo this weekend as I am going to be visiting near his this weekend.

    I just thought I would put it on here before I try Trade me. So just PM me if you are interested, want a photo or to make an offer.

    Cheers.

    Hi Chainsaw.
    As I said in the first post. It is brand new, I have only just sent it to a mate who was going to develop a load for me. But if I can sell it there is not much point doing that. So no idea of accuracy or speeds. But I have heard good things about Hardy's barrels so expect it to do pretty well. No I have never tried heavier pills. The first ones I tried in the old barrel were 140gn Interbonds and they did a great job so saw no reason to change.
    Sorry I don't know the weight, but I don't think its very heavy.
    From my last barrel I was shooting the 140gn interbonds at 3180, and that was from a shorter barrel. the barrel is not threaded for a suppressor. I had one for the last barrel but never used it as I didn't see the point. It was mild to shoot and if I did my job then there was an animal to carry after one shot so noise was not an issue.
    Open to offers
    Cheers.

    Yep. The same one. I thought "Why sell it?" The calibre is great, its nice to shoot and really does the job any any animal it connects with. So I thought I'll get a new barrell on it and it should see me out for the next decade or so.

    But the more time I spend on the internet the more I tell myself I need something else. So I thought I'd sell it before I used it and got attached to it again!

    ....and this time there is all the reloading gear to go with it, not just the rifle.
