Re: Caldwell BR Front Rest Bag

Not sure if the rock br uses the same bags as the Caldwell fire control? I used a seb front bag to replace my fire controls front bag some time ago .

About 490cm elivation
1.15 sec flight time

Re: Neilsen MN600 Sabre L

Davies triggers is shutting shop and becoming more of a hobby business . If your trigger is like mine it might be time to think about a replacement sooner rather than later .

Re: Neilsen MN600 Sabre L

No not as yet but will be sure to post it when it arrives .

Shot the rifle on the weekend and it worked well .
Trigger is very average but will get a replacement 10oz from me Davies .

Rear lugs handled hot 6.5x47 loads with ease and did not make the brass grow .

Pretty happy so far
