Blaser R8 Review

At my local stalking patch in East Yorkshire, a colleague often calls for my assistance when his time is limited and fraying activity by roebucks is giving the farmer some serious cause for concern.

In Scandinavia, they are used for a range of shooting disciplines such as target, biathlon and hunting.
