    Thank you. Sorry haven't been on the site for a bit (yes I hang my head in shame).
    In answer to your questions, I picked it up at Switzer's Auction in Bancroft, ON. They have some pretty neat stuff come across there fairly frequently. Got into a bit of a bidding war with a guy that lives about 40 mins NW of me. We were both bidding on ZG 47's in 8x57 & 9.3x62. He got the 8x57 and I the 9.3.

    Would have liked to been in Jon's shoes...wow that's pretty cool!

    I think you got the best of that deal. I'd sooner have the 9.3 any day.

    Agreed. 8x57 was in really nice shape though. Can't have them all

    Update. Well I finally got to shoot the ol' girl. After mounting and sighting in a new scope, the last three shots cloverleafed 0.30" at 100yds! Wind was blowing at 40mph on a diagonal from behind me as well. I was impressed! Load was using 285gr PRVI SP's. My CZ 550 9.3x62 will do the same with 285gr Lapua MEGA's as well.

    The PRVI SP’s are great rounds. Picked up six boxes for practicing at around $1 a round and was very pleased with the performance
