    Smile Blaser K95 Owners

    Looking at ordering 1 , in either 6.5 x 55 or 7 x 57r , is there any issues with getting the non rimmed case out ? and do I shell out and buy the Blaser carry case or is there a cheaper /better option you can buy ?
    Any advice appreciated , Cheers

    I've got a 7x65R, my mate has a 270. From what I have heard the rimmed vs non-rimmed is just personal choice. The extractor for non-rimmed works well.
    I haven't bothered with the case. I have a couple of dry bags made up and put the rifle in that while walking in and out.

    I d go 6.5x55 , better cases , ammo easier to find in most places and can be reloaded "long" to come close to the throat .

    Thanks Stug, just the answer was looking for, I think 6.5 x 55 it will be , easier to get ammo and lighter recoil for me , how have you found your K95 ? I have been looking at them for a few years and bugger it ya only live once , think I will be in the dog box for a few weeks when the Mrs sees the bank balance though ....Hahaha

    I love my K95!!!!!! I shot a hind at 390yds with it last week, a stag at 360yds back in March. I love being able to take it apart and strap it to my pack for the walk in/out. It retains zero perfectly. I've hit targets out to 940yds with it.
    The only real pain is when you reload you lose your sight picture and have to re-set the rifle etc. I've shot about 5 animals with it now and only needed 2 shots once.
    You do need to make sure that you have the butt properly on your shoulder though. I've noticed if you don't have the but high enough the rifle can slip during recoil and shoot high, something my straight cheekpiece rifles didn't do. Although I see that Blaser are making a straight cheekpiece version again rather than just the hogsback stock version.
    What model are you going to get? I have the standard version, my mate has the edition model. If I'd had unlimited money I would have gone for a Barronese stutzen.

    They've come out with a carbon fibre k95. Looks very Star-Wars...

    those new straight stocks look pretty good

    other than the recoil thing you mention how does the cheek weld feel for you when looking through a scope on your hogsback @stug ?

    Cheek weld is pretty good. A little bit higher cheek would be nicer. The open sights line up nicely.
