    Tried to melt the 7-08

    We decided to go for a drive late this arvo to look at a couple of spots, went down a road we hadn't been before to see where it went & to kill some time.

    Long story short came around a corner to an old skid site & there were Goats everywhere, the 7-08 got a real work out.



    Then there were more from the same mob, thank goodness for 5 shot magazines & a suppressor



    Poor old Tikka was pretty hot by the end of it not to mention the suppressor

    Now the fridge is full of back legs, no stinky ones either, but then we both have colds so there could have been

    Nice, nothing like a good bomb-up on a mob of goats to improve the shooting skills.

    Good work @Kiwi Greg.
    Funny though. With all the rifles I see you post on here I am surprised to see you with a pretty standard looking T3 7mm08 (even with the standard rings still in place).
    Nothing wrong with it of course, just not what I would have expected.

    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Despite the haters, you could take that exact rig damn near anywhere in the world and it'd do the job nicely on any medium game.

    Its a rifle I built for my Partner

    Nice & cheap, light, little recoil from the 120 BTs steaming along with stupid accuracy, plenty of horsepower & devastating terminal performance, detachable mags, good out to 300 odd which is most of the hunting I have been doing lately

    If I was specifically targeting Deer I would use something else, having said that I wouldn't necessitate if one presented itself

    I also have one for her daughter that doesn't have a CF stock but uses the same ammo, I have tons of SH brass I picked up from another Forum member, etc

    Interestingly her barrel is 19 not 20" & is around 60fps slower for some reason...
