Yuup 17hmr's are very fun to shoot.

Gerald same here in Aussie no semis and no supressors either unfortunatley for my hearing!

Have really only had my sako quad wood out once - but the 120m head shots on a couple of rabbits were a joy. I can see the Blaser 93 with .223 match is going to get less of a workout in the future

Here is my Sako Quad wood with set trigger - though it wearing a .22lr barrel and muzzleweight in these pictures. I htink it is the only quad wood with set trigger in the southern hemisphere at the moment

The set trigger is a total joy 2pounds on normal and 9 ounces when set. it is the reason I waited a year for the rifle

Was there a comment about finding that accuracy from bipods was lower on plastic stocked rifles?

Yes, the Hogue plastic stock specifically, is too weak to work well with a bipod. When I shoot, I have to be careful to be very neutral on stock pressure.

TC 17 Hummer

Here is the TC Contender Carbine with a 16.5" 17 Hummer barrel and the Weaver V16 scope. Not much for purty, but it shoots pretty well. Took a PD at 280 yds.
