    100 to 1000 yards scope.

    That scope was sold a while ago now.
  2. I have a used Sightron S3 10-50x60 LRIRMOA complete with sunshade for sale. Ive used this scope successfully on my LR benchrest rifles so I know it tracks and hold zero perfectly. Its a great scope for FClass and benchrest but would be equally at home on a long range varminting rifle. It has the MOA-2 reticle which is also illuminated. Its in clean used condition and the price new is £1395 £750 posted RMSD
  3. Im open to offers on this rest now guys. Its the best of the best and very hard to come by second hand.
  4. The scope is also advertised elsewhere so first come first served.
  5. I bought this scope about 18 months ago to use on a long range benchrest rifle, I used it for three 1000yd shoots winning two of them before I upgraded to a 10-50x60 S3. I then used it again in a 600yd comp finishing second. I say all this because it confirms the tracking and POA retention is good, Im only selling the scope as I have no use for it. It has the favoured MOA-2 reticule. There are a couple of marks as you can see and there is no sun shade with it. The scope is exactly how I bought it from another forum member and Ive priced it the same as I paid for it which at the time was cheap so Im passing that on to the next man. £675 posted RMSD
  6. Guys, Ive got a Seb Max co-axial front rest for sale, its in very good condition. I bought it brand new from Foxy just over a year ago for £1150, its done one season of benchrest. Will take any forend up to 8" - Im looking for £900
  7. Add to the above new load development for a cartridge you dont know. This will possibly take you longer to get the right load than it would to fine tune what you already know about 6.5x47 and again it just adds to the costs. Consumables used in load development quickly add up and at the end of they day all these shots are just a means to an end, bullets primers and powder aren't cheap. Having said that, if you dont shoot much past 600yds I would prefer a 6BR as they are generally a more pleasant caliber to shoot with noticeably less recoil. Im afraid Im in the American camp though, within reason barrels are consumables.

    What did the person who built the rifle advise?

    Mausingfield 6.5x47

    I think the article you found will cover pretty much anything I can say. From my own experience its a very well made high quality product. Most of the work I do these days is custom action builds, BAT, Borden, Bighhorn, Mausingfield, RPA and Defiance. BAT and Borden are tighter but in a field action I wouldn't want that, the Mausingfield has some clearance that allows to to run fast and very smoothly, the finish on the Mausingfield is as good as the very best and now with the option of PVD coatings as standard it is a real player in the LR Varminting and PRS type build market. Even that bolt knob which is very Marmite actually plays a good part in the function once you get used to it. I was talking to the chap who I built it for only this week and he was saying its a delight to use.

    Mausingfield 6.5x47

    I dont have a daughter... As for the target, the name of the maker is printed on it, contact him and ask him yourself.

    Mausingfield 6.5x47

    The target isn't mine, I posted pictures sent to me by the chap that was paid by my customer to do the load development. What I do know is he made the target himself in MS Word
