Hi CLAW, that new rifle sounds like it will be very similar to mine. Id like to have a go with it when its finished just to see what it shoots like and see what the recoil is like...
A heads up might be to go and get a picatinny type rail for it and mount that nightforce scope in some nightforce rings as I have done. I initally didnt sdo that and insted brought some optilock rings with bases but they are nowhere near as good and + you might want an extra 20moa of adjustment that you can get from the rail.
Best of luck with it.... and very important to remember that Tony is very good but good things take time!

hmmm, I have ordered Optilocks and bases... Might see if that can be changed. No worries re having a shot. I am down Gore way, but would be keen for a Tahr (or similar) trip at some stage once I have the rifle figured out (and my fitness...). I'm sure we could arrange something so you could get a shot. With the supressor, recoil should be pretty light.

Yeah definitly when its finished if you want to go Tahr hunting something can be arranged no problem. Yeah I just thought id mention it as those optilock rings and bases arnt the best when you put a heavy scope in them.. With mine the rings came loose from the base twice and in the end i resorted to superglue... ended up a waste of $270 or so. The nightforce rings - whilst expensive - are really strong and very light. It can just be hard to get the rail although im pretty sure theres a couple of places in the USA that make them now... at the time they only made them for short actions.
Rod Woods in Loburn - North Canterbury machined mine from a blank of that really strong aircraft grade alloy so he could be good to ask.... by all accounts his finished job looked a bit rough but it seems to be very true!

How's that CZ working out for you? Cool


Awesome rifle for the money I reckon. Very accurate, last trip out took about 10 rabbits in a row from 10 shots between 250m and 330m, using handloads with 40gr vmax's. Nice compact action and awesome trigger, either set or unset (especially since I readjusted it recently). Not too heavy and stock is very stiff (not having the problems the guys are having with the walnut stocks). Supressor is a great addition, three of the rabbits above were sitting in a group at 255m, and each remaining rabbit sat there wondering what had happened to its mate(s) until it met the same fate... Grin


I SO want a .204!!

Just needs a bit of that wood cleaned up, a few holes cut it the tip of the barrel for a muzzle brake and a scope welded on top is all

no, she shoots very well indeed. BIt of a wait from firing till it hits the 100 target...but then it woudl, the projectile weighs about 4 lbs and will go through a Holden engine block. ( Or 17 Zulu's standing back to back.)

Bloody weirdo's on youtube jesus, all arguing that 1000 yards is the longest shot attempted by open sights.
I don't know where they get that from............ .303 Longtom Was used at 1000yds for target shooting, .308 is still used at 1000yrds for target with open sights.
Ahh the mystery of people believing they are experts because they posses a phone line and a computer.
