    Been cleaning this old .280 Ross for the NZDA Heritage Trust, some of you may have seen it on our Facebook page. It's Archie Kitto's old rifle and when I removed the buttplate I found the original registration from 1921 inside. The pic of Frank Kitto and the "Big Chief" Stag from the Albert Burn was taken in 1922- the rifle in the image is the same one. Very cool.

    Was not going to scope it, not right away anyway. If I do it will probably end up with a 1-4 Steiner or similar low powered scope.

    Das Beste oder Nichts

    Translates to "The Best or Nothing"

    Mercedes Benz used it a lot for marketing.

    A previous owner had it done.

    I bought a old Sako, AV in 7x64 a mouth or two back, super nice rifle, nicest trigger ive had on a factory rifle in ages, been doing a bit of load work, and decided the cheep 3x9 Leopold, wasn't doing the rifle justice, so a new scope Z3 bought for my cooper single shot, and a swapped that scope to the Sako 7x64.

    Pretty Impressive accuracy , but finding load data is pretty anemic, Hornardys new 10th addition showing 200fps difference between the 7x65 and 7x64, sister cartridges I had thought, Ive found factory 173gr S&B doing 2600fps and the current Max load data for 154gr and 162 gr Hornardy, cup and core SST ELD-X is giving me 2600 and 2570 at max with H4350, 50g and 49gr with the 162gr,
    Back to range perhaps tonight, and will see what a bit of extra powder delivers, trying up to 55gr with the 154gr.
    Bugger all, suitable powder in town at present, only R19 and 7828, I try r19 if todays results are still slow.

    Saved some walnut and blued steel. Gun shop had some parts guns on sale and I liked the look of the butt stock on this one. No safety, magazine or bolt and no rifling visable with all the dirt and dust in the barrel $50.00 and it came home on thursday.After a good scrub barrel looked good and smooth, sluged at .311 so replaced the missing bits from my parts bin, the first bolt head head spaced perfect and oiled the woodwork. Shot it at my 200 yd gong this morning 5" group with 180 gr Highland.

    Very happy I have a scoped no1 mkIII that will do 1.5" at 100 yds this one if scoped may do the same. I wonder how many good barrels get dumped because of other faults.
