Looks prettier than any of the South Australian offerings :wink: . Looking forward to seeing it at Rosedale Antony. We had another new member on Saturday, also with a new 284 (Defiance/Masterclass/Benchmark). Down the track we could see a swag of 284s shooting on Saturdays. No shooting this weekend though. The horse clubs are having a turn.

Good to know the colour looks good, I wanted it to be different but not too out there lol..

Can't wait to get it out at Rosedale Allan, been a long time coming. Good to know the 284's are still doing the job :wink:

That is correct, I have been assured it will come in just under 10kg including scope...time will tell luckily I have been stockpiling barrels since its conception, so if it's too heavy I can accommodate........mind you if it's too heavy i'm not going to be very happy at all.

How are you going to go with rifle balance? It looks like it will be very heavy on the front bag.

Hi Tony, I would be surprised if John got it wrong ! As he has told me he builds bench guns to the ounce !

So don't worry !

The rifle is shooting well, just figuring out loads, have had it for 12 months now, but only blew the dust off it at the Rosedale OPM, and have shot every weekend since, yesterday I shot 59.4 and 59.2 @ 300yds Moe City rifle club, with two wind changes that I didn't see :roll: . Hopefully the X counts start going up.
