    Topgear is rather fond of the old Myras (or at least those built on L461's)

    Cheers

    I love the last sentence in the article just above the ad! Relates to a thread of just a couple days ago about magnum calibers. Aussies have a way with words!!! It took us multiple posts to convey the same thought.

    Myra was ahead of their time. Little could they know how popular the concept of making larger bores on the .222 basic case would eventually become. The 6x47 and the TCU series became great benchrest rounds, and the .300 Blackout has blossomed in popularity as a short-range game cartridge.

    Not to mention that we could buy a 17 HMR from him back in the 60's.
