    Received notification the rifle should arrive by UPS tomorrow. Just in time for the weekend....but, being semi-retired that doesn't mean as much as it used to....lol!!! I don't work Friday's anyway.

    And so it did arrive. Fortuitously the rifle is better than presented. Bore is as close to pristine as I would call one and the case colors are amazing for a rifle so old. Spent Saturday morning casting the chamber & slugging the bore just to be certain. It wouldn't be the first time I ordered a rifle that was not chambered for the cartridge it was advertised as. All was well as it is the 8.15 X 46R.....except that my Hornady dies don't size the case enough. Fortunately the old RCBS dies that came with the rifle work admirable. Had some 170 gr., .323 round nose cast so sized them down to .321, loaded and shot them just to hear it go bang and function check. Had to order a .318 sizing die as the .321 is a bit big. Pulled the components of the rifle down and it is amazingly clean inside. All I did was lightly oil the innards. Tang sight is a disappointment. It's a composite of put together parts and the most important part fits terribly sloppy in the dovetail. The good thing is my tang sight from my other Schuetzen rifle fits like a glove. That and I have a correct barrel sight for the rib.

    No pictures yet. Weather has been abysmal and evidently isn't going to straighten up for a few days.
