    Weatherby .223 with Nikon scope & DPT

    For sale Weatherby Vanguard .223 in good nick only had about 100 rounds through it. Really good bore, I haven't shot it much but goes well with hornday 55gr SPs. Pretty sure its 1:12 twist. Barrel cut to 18" and threaded by M.O.A Engineering. Really nice trigger.
    DPT suppressor is near new too, similar number of rounds through it. See pic of wear in first baffle, which is expected in the first few rounds or so (see dpt website. Yay, dpt where you can actually see such things).
    3-9 X 40 Nikon Prostaff in warne style rings, all in good nick too.
    A few marks but nothing major.
    Looking for $850 plus fright via Fastways depot to depot.

    Yes, basically a Howa 1500, a few minor mods to Weatherbys requirements.

    Its slightly shorter in the length of pull than most of my rifles so probably great for kids.

    Dunno, never tried. Only shot it a few times at 50m. Hornady 55gr SPs were all touching at that distance.
