Just picked this gun up. It is slightly used, however, there is not a scratch anywhere on it and the blueing is in 100% condition. I can't tell by just looking that the gun has ever been fired. This one will fit in with my 340 Weatherby very nicely. It is topped with a Swarovski Scope which is a very nice but extremely pricy scope. I knew nothing about this particular cartridge before I bought it but I have since done some reading. It appears to be a pretty flat shooting gun, flatter than the 25-06 and has much more down range energy and velocity. This is a hard hitting quarter bore if what I have read thus far is correct. I would like to hear opinions from those of you that have experience with this caliber.
