Thx.

Lots has happend.

First up,the use of a drop tube really makes for a difference. No argument on that one. Mine i made from a brass funnel and regular 10mm copper tubing.

In turn the mold for PP bullets showed up from German Hensel. Seeing how it´s made..feels very "old school". Throws bullets that needs to rounds of paper to fill the bore up.
Some swear by paper patching..others do not..but that said i´ve got a few molds to play around with now,not counting the ones for "regular" ogival bullets.

In turn i replaced the scope on it. Now we´re talking a current crop Zeiss,and indeed.. I tend to use this rifle a bit to be fair and..is it EVER a beaut to shoot. Downright pussycat even.
Such rifles..tend to see use  )L$

Impressions (apart from it being soft on ones shoulder)? Sure. Less than 100 meters is friggin pointless. To the letter. ..and i keep getting better at shooting the thing.

Nice construction on the drop tube.

Thx CK.
As simple as it gets.

If i just get the time to i´m going to start making a copy of the original globe front sight. As such the rifle will be as stock as it can at will.
