Parker-Hale M85

Has anyone had any experiance with these rifles?
I remember reading years ago that these rifles could put 5 rounds into about an inch at 600y, I have no doubt that these rifles are/were very accurate but I find it kinda hard to believe they could consistantly produce these results, even in ideal conditions. In reality how does it perform @ 200y/300y with M118LR or the british equivalent?
Also what action does it use? from the grainy pictures i could find on google it looks like a Mauser98 copy?

Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs & cackling "You're next". They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.
