    Quite a serious-looking piece of artillery.

    G'day Mick and welcome,
    Nice bit of gear there. I have several Tobler barrels on Sako actions also, they all shoot well. And I enjoy dealing with Robert, he's a bit of a character!
    Which pills are you shooting, and what sort of speeds are you getting from your rifle?

    Paulsonconstruction: that's the Drop Bear Holder, and if you look carefully you can see where the little buggars have been sticking in their climbing claws.

    Cheers
    Piper

    Still single shot? I have to admit, my 223 with ten-shot magazine goes along way when culling and varmenting.

    Cracka. Mate you love what is trusty in the bush, that's for sure. Not everything we do makes sense to everyone but it's nice to have something nice!

    As Long as it makes sense to me is all that matters mate.

    I do love a dedicated single shot, especially when it's a rare L461 SS receiver to build off.. Cheers all
