    Wanted 223

    Hi All
    looking at getting a .223 for bunnies and goats seeing what's out there before buying, currently looking at a Ruger with a faster twist to cover all bases.

    Cheers 6mm

    I have had good success with the Zastava min action (M85) or are you after a semi auto? The wee Howa mini action 223s look good too but are bolt action....I wont comment on semi's as the only ones I have had much to do with are Saigas and I cannot compare them to what I have not used.

    Found the Tikka pretty decent mate. Very accurate with the 12 twist barrel loving the 55 grain pills. Clover leaf groups at 100 with the OSA 55 Game King and Hornady 55 SP.

    Did swapsies last year when 3 of us went wallabying tried a vanguard and savage trophy hunter both shot superbly. Liked the savage best .Its 1 in 9 twist handles 69 gr ok. Still think my zastava will do me for a while longer though.

    I am looking at selling my Tikka T3 .223 in the near future. Its about 7 yrs old, blued barrel, 8" twist. I have set it up for shooting 75gr Amax's. Let me know if you are interested
    If you find yourself in a fair fight....your tactics suck
