Believe it or don't but I have a circa 1979 788 that has over 12,000 rounds through it. Olde Granny can still put 5 in under an inch at one hundred yards from a cold bore.

On that statement I would hate to be a jackal in SA, if there are any left.Had a 22-250 for many years which killed a load of foxes and roe deer and was still shooting sub moa when a game keeper made me an offer I couldn't refuse and he shot far more so fluufy things than I ever did and probably still is.
You will never eradicate jackal by shooting them - but of course I should have added that the same guys do the shooting of blesbok and springbok for the European meat market.

Sheep farmers are reintroducing caracal - or rather allowing them to proliferate as the sheep they catch are lesser in numbers than the numbers of jackal they kill.

Recoil Junky, it is obvious you did the right thing caring for your rifle to get that many rounds and it still keep up.

Ozhunter - you're asking for something of 9 years ago? Yes, as I recall, The info was published data. Now ask where it came from. At 82, I can't remember what I read last week, let alone 9 years ago! :eek:
