    Get your arse down there and give the man a report fellah's.

    Jakewire, the best reports would come out of Brad's or Neckshot. Dundee could confirm it is a rifle. Ha ha ha ha.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    There you go Jakewire, now they are lining up for the opportunity to serve. Sprinkle a little Rushy magic dust and voila!

    He would also confirm that it is good 6km rifle with his trusty range finder.

    Thanks Chaps
    So I guess from the replies it is just a standard X bolt.
    No Euro factory fluting, threading, etc.
    Standard USA factory 1-9 twist for a USA built 6.5, well until recently, maybe 1-8 now hopefully.
