    Rifle package around Auckland

    Gidday,

    I'm getting back into rifle hunting deer, looking for something around Auckland so I can pick up quickly (freight slow atm) for a hunt next month.

    Will be hunting bush, farmland and forestry, shots no more than 250-300m, mostly sub-150m.

    Calibre wise I'm pretty easy: .243 / 6.5 Swede / .260 / .308 / 7mm-08 etc. Not reloading at this stage. No magnums.

    Prefer to buy with scope, rings etc., doesn't have to be fancy tacti-dial or whatever, just looking for a good quality 3-9x40 or similar.

    Looking to spend $1500 or a little more for the right package. Not looking for the sale of the century, just a fair deal.

    Flick me a PM if you prefer and we can chat

    If nothing pops up in a week or so I will do a wander round the gun shops, and the yellow site - just wanted to check here first.

    Cheers
    Macca

    @maccanz I've got a Carl Gustav 6.5x55 sportized with a synthetic stock, timney safety, one piece rail and a gun works supressor. Groups sub moa with reloads. $500 for the lot, and that will let you spend the money where it counts, optics. I'm in rotorua but will be driving up to Whangarei on the 20th May. If your interested I can send photos.

    That's a good budget, should be able to get something quite reasonable!

    Thanks to everyone who touched base with an offer or advice - much appreciated.

    I've managed to sort something out for the next couple of months, and will take a good look around once we get out of lock-down.

    Cheers
