AA400 seems the obvious choice and that would leave a decent sum for a second hand scope like a targetmaster?? Or do we try to pick up a MPR and go for a cheaper scope.
I guess the question is..... if you were limited to a budget of £525 to get as good a FT set up as you can, what would you choose?
Would certainly go for the S400, reliable and accurate, as for the MPR basicly a S400 in a target stock, that can be possibly looked at later. Hopefully that should leave £250-£300 for scope, mounts, a seat and riflecase. Scopewise I would look at Hawke Sidewinder or Nikko Targetmaster, ideally up to 32mag. That way you can buy new and get a good few years out of them without taking the risks the second hand market sometimes poses. Also a top tip, a GOOD set of mounts!
