Mine is exactly the same, so is my Ruger Hawkeye. A bit of play during bolt operation and a reasonable amount of movement with bolt fully to the rear.

Itd fit in #4 ring but for the power adjustment ring, might try an extension ring as I do need to bring the scope back a little for eye relief.

The best around at the moment is $150 Australian for 500 rounds.

About $100 USD.

Single packets around $25-$30 Australian. Seems to be in most shops though not at bulk prices.

Yes, Im very happy with it! Will be a handy and effective rifle, if only the ammunition was a little more readily available. Though I will pick up 2,000 rounds next week.
