2004 was very early days in F-Class and Norman Clark in Rugby built that rifle for me entirely from his spare parts bin during the previous summer. It was in 300 H&H Magnum and used a 'de-eared' Winchester P'14 action and rechambered Maddco 30-inch 12-twist 7.62 barrel from (different) TR rifles. The stock IIRC was from a scrapped 'match rifle' and the trigger was a small-scale manufacture job from some English gunsmith in the TR/MR rifle business. Scope was a 20X44 Edgar Brothers Opti-Mate fixed power job (still around as the SWFA Super Sniper) with a rather coarse Mil-Dot reticle and would have had a dark sight picture on a day like this thanks to the small exit pupil value.
It shot pretty well - considering - but kicked like a mule. Luckily, the Opti-Mate / SFWA Japanese built scope was / is a very robust scope especially in its (budget) price range as most cheap scopes would have had their innards shot loose in a couple of hundred rounds with that recoil.
