    7x64. I've got 20 S&B loaded rounds and 40 cases. Haven't fired her yet, looking forward to some load development!

    Masterton Hunting & Fishing. The set trigger is beautiful. The bolt is nice and tight in the action too, I'm really impressed with this rifle. The only thing that really needs changing is the plastic floorplate. Why they'd put one on such a traditional rifle is beyond me.

    I also think (just been pedantic) but a red/pink recoil pad would set it off just perfect
    It’s a great buy/investment well done

    This recoil pad

    @FRST Great choice! I have a few including one in 7x64. My 7x64 also has a plastic floor plate but the 9.3x62 is steel so maybe its luck of the draw!?

    Yeah, there's an American classic model at GunCity Wellington with a steel floorplate too. Hopefully I can track one down. If you want to trade your steel floorplate so you can have two matching plastic ones then just let me know, I'd be more than happy to help you out... hahahaha!!

    There's a '10' beside the right side barrel proof and the test target is dated 2010 so I'm assuming that's correct. What years are yours?

    7x64 is also 2010, 9x62 is 2016. I also have a 452 .22 and 527 .223 (both full stocks) and they are both 2010
