... but is the Steyr as good as the Walther KKJ from the same era??

I have recently bought a KKJ, and it is excellent, but I have never seen a Steyr. The KKJ is much better made than my BSA Supersport Five, with a much better magazine design.

HB




Had a look at a KJJ last week, 3 consignment guns. Same owner. Anshutz SS 222 nickel 1.5 scope, 17hmr Krico 401 match 8x56 seeadler, and 22 Walther KJJ All very nice. KJJ already gone.
I like the styer a lot more than the KJJ.
Will post pics of the Krico when PTA clears, too nice to leave on the shelf Cheers Mick

Really nice rifle, Mic.

Why the subsonics? How does it do with HV Hp stuff?




Just wanted to go back to where I started from as a Kid Enjoying how quiet subs are Also very effective.

Shoots the CCI velocitors very good . Styers a bit fussy about what it will feed.

Gotcha - my Anschutz prefers HIVel Browning 38gr. HP's at 1,445fps and Winchester 555 HP' bulk, but the other .22's like
Remington Yellow Jackets & WW SuperX HP's.
I've never shot subs, except for some match ammo & Winchester Dynapoints, which ran 1,080fps.

Looks like it's starting to warm up there, Mic. Here, it's getting colder time.
Beautiful rifle.

Louis, that's what ours look like in the summer time. They fluff out in the winter.

Nice. Who eats them, you or the hungry ones? How do you eat them i.e. how cooked?

Shared with the weis, who have only just discovered that they are good eating.
We eat them after cleaning, soak in salt water then steam. Crumb and deep fry. Pretty good hot or cold.

Some excellent rabbit recipes on NE and links.

My mother used to cook rabbits in cream which was really nice. I must see if she can write down the recipe if she remembers.

King Baboons Grandma's French country rabbit recipe is very nice.

The Sopranos series had an Italian country rabbit recipe which looks tasty.

One day I have to start off a Nitro Express cooking video channel

Thanks for the bunny hunt pictures. No doubt the dogs enjoy it and the tucker.

Back East, in Ontario, I used to soak the cotton tail pieces in milk, in the refrigerator overnight, before cooking. (usually frying) the next day or freezing the pieces for a later supper.
When frying, I would roll the pieces in salt and peppered flour, then right into the buttered frying pan.
Later on, Dad had me roll them in whipped egg first before the flour and that was even better. Fried crisp on the outside.
