Default I went to the gun shop yesterday

I didnt buy anything but i did have a look around.

As you guys may know, i am in the market for a .22-250, and the shop dude did show me a few rifles. The one he was particularly keen on and which sells well here in Australia was the Remington Model 700 VS SF II. This rifle was on the shelf at $1995 AU, so to me, I thought it was a little overpriced. Your Thoughts?

Also i had a look at the Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15x50 ($499). This was a great scope! It turned me on!! He also showed me some Swift scopes, eg. 6-24x50 ($350ish) amongst others. Leupolds were nice to view, despite the price tag, as it goes up a notch from the Bushnell - $700-$800.

Will have to do some looking around, and on Saturday morning i will be back out there, this time in the heart of Melbourne, to look through another shop.
