    Hwl,
    That German made 8x57 Sxs action must have come from the same factory as Merkel and Simson! :) Typical German, strong, highly functional, and good looking.

    I saw a Purdey s x s in .240 in an auction catalogue (from the early '90's) I think. (I have a copy of at home) I will check when I get back home from my current stint in the Middle East. From memory it was designed for "Park Deer". Back then the estimated price would have been considered cheap by today's standards!

    Saul . A kindred spirit amongst kindred spirits (if you see what I mean)

    The saving grace for me was that in the UK one has to have a "variation" to ones Firearms Certificate before buying a rifle. This can take ages (ie months and months). I have to say though somewhat frustrating, this little piece of UK law has saved me a fortune over the years and also most likely saved many a marital argument!!!

Zero recoil and very good for roe deer but also for smallish boar and red deer. A short while ago I shot with it a highly unusual roe deer.

    Bushpig. Are you a southpaw? If so even a better find for you. If not how does she work right handed? The reason I ask is with that cheek-piece I can imagine the cast-off for a right handed shooter must me quite severe.
    (Interesting Buck. Did you keep the head?)
