    A good choice on the BRNO. I had a ZG47, had an action to rival Tahr's Shultz and Larsen. The 8x57 will do everything a 308 or 30-06 will do, mine likes the Speer 170 and a full case of 2208. The one you have bought looks a real nice firearm.

    Didn't realise you were in the UK mate! Geez, you've really got some crazy good options over there.

    Von Gruff at the "other pub" does nice work and has been generous with his advice to me on stock finishing.

    I've met Mr Keown - yep, he does amazing work. Last time I got I'm touch with him he was quite busy with his knife making.

    Bloody nice rifle, @MSL. Dig the grain pattern. What action?

    Fired about 200 rounds, mostly 350gr cast loads at 1900fps, but some 400 or 450gr loads at 2300-2400fps. The latter were real teeth rattlers.
