I am part of a Feral control team, Pigs, Deer, Foxes, Cats and Dogs and once a week we take our local Aboriginal elders out to get some Roo's for Tucker, this was bought to be a working riffle. I bought the Bavarian in a 260 calibre. I sit here writing this because this gun deserves to be written about. Straight out of the box you could tell you were holding quality, the craftsmanship is equal or better than most. Fit a scope, did a bore sight, 2 inch target at 100 meters. First 3 shots. (photo 1) Bag on a table, not bad. Got it to a 12mm grouping. We spot light using a gun rack. Longest Kill shot 470metres.. Hornady Super Performance 129grain SST. Feral Pigs up to 350mtr its deadly. 18 months later, over 1,800 rounds, cleaned every shoot and apart from a very few bumps on the wood it is like brand new.
