    Wood/Blued is by far and away my favourite rifle configuration. Here are a couple of my current favourites, a Brno ZKK
    601 in .223 and a Winchester 1892 in 44WCF.

    To be fair, the ‘92 doesn’t really count as being “blued”.

    Yeah moves away from your eye under recoil. The spring on the exterior returns it into position, however it returns too fast sometimes and if your not careful it'll still smoke ya!
    USMC Springfields had them removed but I quite like the look of the spring, so I've left mine on.

    Finished work for the year so it's time to stretch the legs and shoot some groups. Anyone testing their wood/blue rifles over the break?

    Will be doing a bit of load development with the .223 over the break, and no doubt stretching the legs of the 44-40 and 30-30 in the name of practice/enjoyment.

    Went out and finished load development on the 270 and brought the 45-70 too. Recoil got pretty horrible at 57grs of 2207 so called it a day.

    Just picked this up today. CZ550 FS in 7x64. First saw it a couple of months ago and thought I'd leave it as I didn't have the money at time. Saw a pair of reloading dies on FB earlier this week for its chambering and thought as I was heading to Masterton I should look it up, but thinking it'd probably be long gone. However there she was, $100 cheaper with rings and ammo thrown in. I couldn't resist a second time. Just needs a nicer pair of rings and a gloss Leupold (small rear bell needed for bolt clearance) to really set it off now. Contacted the bloke with the dies and they are on their way too. It was meant to be! (that's what I'm telling the wife anyway)

    Also, @FRST you should check out ebay there's a few sellers in Europe that have all manner of older steel tube gloss finish scopes, Zeiss, Hendsoldt, Swaro etc at very reasonable prices and no worries to ship to NZ
