    @ChrisW are you able to explain why the 22lr has such a funny looking low hanging magazine, whilst the 17hmr doesn't?
    I've seen pictures and reports of the 22lr model in Sweeden having a magazine that looks like the 17hmr one.

    Thanks @Beetroot. It is really encouraging to see some groups like this - half a minute of rabbit head. I think the word is out that these rifles need quite a bit of running in, some of the accuracy reviews Iíve seen were with new rifles and a couple just didnít like certain ammo at all.

    An old mate in the UK has now got his rifle reliably shooting tiny little groups (subs, CCI I think), at first it was errr, not so sure, so he basically just shot cans and any old crap for 200+ shots or maybe more, just to get it run in. He absolutely loves his T1x now and is going the whole NV mission, the works.

Some of the accuracy tests have been pretty ordinary.
    That was 60 yds and put about a 100 through so far.
    I'm pretty happy with the whole rig and keen to get some more ammo down the spout

    Im not sure sorry. We were unaware it was going to be like that till the 22LR actually showed up a month or so ago.
