    I would like to trade my 340 Weatherby custom Sako A5 for some optics. Looking for a Nightforce 2.5-10x32 mil/mil or a Leica 1600, maybe a ffp Zeiss or some other european glass. Rifle has Pac-nor barrel faced and trued Sako A5 sitting in a MPI stock. Rifle has very low round count <100 was put together by an old timer (that died in WA, name I can't remember). The rifle pounds 250-300s (1-10 twist) I'll try to get a group pic up. Comes with RCBS FL dies and a couple boxes of factory ammo and some once fired factory (Norma) brass. Zeiss isn't included in the sale, but the rings and bases are. This is a truly sweet deal, hit me up with your offers.

    Pillar and Devcon bedded by MPI. Holland brake IIRC. Receiver is tapped, bases have screws through them to ensure they stay put. Barrel is 26" without brake.

    The brake is a Holland for sure. The trigger is a polished factory trigger with a pull of 2 1/2 lbs (verified) I never tried to adjust it, but it may go down from there. The rifle with my Zeiss on it weighs just a touch over 9 lbs.

    Not getting any trade offers. How about $1000 and I'll buy my own scope. Thats a real affordable entrance into the long range game. Especially with the 340 components included and available in the components section. CC and paypal free. I would really prefer a trade though.
