Im Liam and i live on the Shetland Islands just north of Scotland.

So i have mentioned said rifle in the title of the post. But i cant seem to find that much info on it, can anyone shed some light on this, as all i read about is the scope base not being the advertised as 20moa.
I would also be thinking to top it off with a Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25
Well a buddy of mine just bought the same rig and he's very pleased with it. Hasn't gotten a lot of rounds down range as yet but it's shooting sub .75 moa and isn't even through the break in period yet.
He topped his with a zeiss conquest 6.5-20x50 with the Z-1000 reticle and has been well pleased.
You will want to plan on a very good recoil pad and effective muzzle brake
because they can be a bit tough on the shooter.
Best advice is before buying, find someone who has one who'll let you try their's out for a few rounds unless you've shot heavy recoiling rifles in the past.
I'm not recoil sensitive at all and I don't mind admitting that in less than a 16lbs configuration more than about 5 rounds and it does start to wear on me.
