    An ounce of no5 shot out of the old 16ga normally helps with that.

    I took my old single shot voere for a walk today. I only take it when I'm not really expecting to see much cause I cant hit diddly squat with it - not the guns fault, I'm just not so great with the iron sights. I got a couple of shots off at bunnies but no hits, so I decided to check how it was sighted. Found it was shooting a bit to the right, found a cow bone and used it to drift the sight a bit and bingo! got one!

    Its a bit of a franken gun, it must have had its stock damaged and been refitted with a bsa stock with mag well. It did not fit very well when I got it so I filled it up with panelbeaters bog and fitted pillars and a second mounting screw, bedded it, and made a new extractor as it was missing. Its super lightweight and quite cool, but the irons are difficult to use. I wouldn't mind finding a small low magnification scope to build a mount for, but that will have to wait.

    @buzzman took the 223 out this pm, after playing round on the range with it, whacked on a Hardies gen v suppressor and a Nikon 3-9 P223 scope. Got 6 rabbits at an average of 100 metres, a hare at 50 metres and a ginger mick at 215 metres. All good with a mixture of Outback and Belmont ammo, 55 grain projectiles

    Three hunts this weekend, weather was rubbish each morning and by 1 pm mint, 72 shot. Today I left "Ping Pong " at home ( Norinco ) and took "FeFe" the dirty French Assassin out for a dirty cheap date .
    Stunning evening, the Unique rocking some of Central's finest , photo doesn't show how big they are, I don't know if it's a condition thing before winter. Best shot 127 mtrs ranged.Name:  DSC_0092.jpg

    Burris Droptine 3-9 x 40. Nice little scope, optics are good ( not great ) seems well made and has a little ballistic recticle for the 22lr. My Norinco came with an old Burris 2-7 made in USA, body beaten up but very nice glass.
