It's not unusual to see second hand Tikka M55 in .17 Rem here in Australia. If you were really serious about spotlight shooting foxes for skins...
G'day Pete, I'm guessing you have ventured across from AHN.
Looking forward to see how the 7x33 load development goes.
For my fellow Aussies - saw this advert online. Thought someone might be interested. I'm in Vic but I haven't contacted the seller to see where...
