    Great looking rifle!

    The little bit of scenery tells me that the Austrian Alps is a beautiful place to live, also.

    Hello Guys!!

    Thats an PTG Bottom Metal and Wyatt┬┤s Mag. Feeds perfect and will hold 3rounds in the Magazin. Barrel Contour is around #4. The Border Barrel contours are a little different to US Barrel makers. Muzzle diameter is about 17.5mm or 0.7 inch.
    wish you all a merry christmas:)

    How do you like the March scope? I haven't heard much about them. You made me look at their website, they look good. Is the quality worth the price?

    It is also my first one and i guess its the best i ever had!! Very bright, sharp and clear, they use HD lenses. Here in Austria there we have some famous scope maker like Swarovski or Kahles. But for my solution, to go long range hunting and shooting, March is my favorite. i also love the Zero Stop it is so easy and you did not need any Tools.
    In the US i think you can order at Kelblys. I ordered mine from Marchscopes UK.

    Hello Guys!!

    Today i went out for shooting the Rifle again. Distance was 570 yrds, wind 90 degrees about 6m/s, i shot 139 grs Hornady SST in front of 67.5 grs. Norma MRP at 3250f/s (Fireform load out of .270 WSM Norma Brass)
    I dialed 7MOA and 1.5 MOA for the wind,
    these are 4 shots at 0.75 MOA and 3 shots within 0.125 MOA, not so bad for the beginning :D
    next time I will test 168 grs. Berger Hunting VLd
    regards from Austria
