  1. Dear All, Regrettably the bank of wife won’t let me buy a new toy withought parting with an old one. So up for sale is my Tikka T3 action, Krieger 1/8 6.5x47L barrel, heavy varmint profile @ 26inch, threaded 17x1 spigot. Stock is a McMillan A3-5 with a Tier One bottom metal, inletted and pillars installed by Mr McKillop. Action , rail and barrel is Ceracoated OD green, fluted bolt Matt Black. signs of wear are present. It has an over size bolt knob, 20moa and 0moa picattiny rails, custom made trigger blade from Bozard and Co, swept back more than a standard Tikka blade to allow for a more comfortable grip for those with stubby fingers. Stock is in excellent condition no chips or scratches, will come with a 5rd aics .308 magazine. This has been my main deer rifle for a while now, I won’t lie the barrel has probably had more than 2500 rounds down it. But it’s been well maintained and still shoots sub MOA, have shot over 200 fallow with it this season, in the head. Can come with Redding type C dies and an assortment of bullets and whatever cases I have (100+). Price for the lot plus the rfd fee is, £900 If barrelled action sells for £350+rfd I would sell the stock, bottom metal and magazine for £550 and re list the dies/bullets. Many thanks , Ben

    Dear Op Think Iv butted in on conversations regarding 204R before but I’ll mention my findings again. I had a lovely Sako 85 in 204R with a 20 inch barrel and shot hundreds of foxes over a couple of years but could never get the velocity I wanted and after failing to get it rebarreled to a sensible 26 inch sold it. ( I only say sensible as I can’t see the point in running a high velocity round out of a short barrel if your chasing “laser tragectories” ). I got a bit pissed off with the 204R because I missed the odd one due to the small bullets 32-39 gn not bucking the wind all that well at 2-350m. Also the only foxes I had run shot with it were ones shoulder shot, which happened a few times. I came to the conclusion it didn’t penetrate all that well on say a big dog fox. If you want to cleanly kill foxes every time I’d recommend a .223 caliber pushing a 50-55gn bullet as fast as you can get it. Or better still a 6mm. If your only going to shoot the occasional fox and not go out in all weather get the 204R. But if your serious about it maybe get something other than what a lot of other people recommend as good for “rabbits and crows”. Ill say it again you can never over gun a fox! Ben
  7. Also interested if details could be posted? Ben
  8. She’s a beauty mate, my personal defender is an early td5 90 they are fantastic trucks, mines on nearly 200k and still purring. Good luck with the sale, it’s a good price with all the mods, a few dings and scratches only add character to a landy!

    Summer Boots

    https://www.brandecosse.com/product/fagiano/ I now wear these all day all year, can’t fault them got a high pair also for the winter. Went off Meindl as the insoles wear through rapidly and the rubber rind peels off. They’re not cheap but my first pair are 4 years old now and still going strong after a lot of hard wear. Splash out treat your feet. Ben

  15. Hi All After just finding out the wife is expecting again... This will have to go. I brought it second hand 6 years ago and it’s been on one of my main work rifles since and never missed a beat, it makes an awesome lamping scope and the fine reticle is perfect for culling. It’s mechanicaly sound. Specs are as in the title. It has 1cm elevation clicks. It has use related marks as shown in the photos and the lenses are probably 85% with no major scratches. It comes with the box, lens caps and all the paper work/ballistic stickers. Price reflects its condition £750 rmsd. For what it is it’s still an excellent scope. Any questions please ask please pm me for detailed pictures. Ben
