I was refering to the mag release, which was a bit exposed when I last looked. I thought that it may lead to lost mags if out stalking in dense thicket.

I coudn't aggree more about Peter Jackson, his work is very good, I had him rebarrel a Tikka 595 a couple of years ago with one of your finest fast twist .224's (22-250Ackley) it returns .45" consistantly. Whilst doing the work Peter trued the action FOC, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who want's work done.

Re: RPA Interceptor

hi folks

i am keeping the AI. it's going off to border barrels to get re-tubed to a 260rem tight neck. 30" heavy varmint taper fluted.... should be good.

thus, to fill the empty space on my ticket, i was thinking of getting an rpa in 308....

i am having a major clean out of shooting sticks, now that i am a bit more worldly wise. the 25-06 is going, as is the 222....

i think the 308 will be plenty good for general stalking and hunting, and i was thinking of a 22-250 for the roe.....

who knows. depends how far the plastic card will bend.

thanks for all the input though folks. i'll let you all know what the outcome is.

derek
