    I watched a doco last week about lion fish. They are deadly venomous and had ruined the fishery in the area the doco was about. The local fisherman couldn't survive any more but some English fisherman went there and caught a bunch and ate term. The locals were scared of them, looked like real bad news.

    I'm with you on the sharks Gibo. Some guys think they are tough because they killed a shark.

    Agreed, I'd like to see them get in the water with them with just a knife and do it, then maybe they'd be tough

    Well I had been thinking of up grading my old BSA Monarch 30 06 with something new and stainless. I couldn't afford anything to fancy and after much searching and reading on Goggle I decided on a Ruger American in 30 06. Most reviews gave the thumbs up for this rifle so I thought I would go with that one. It arrived yesterday and we got it set up with a Nikon Monarch 2.5 x 10 x42 scope. I had loaded up some 180 gr Noslar BT and Accubonds with a max load of 57grs of AR 2209. All up with a loaded mag and sling and scope it weighs 3.6kg.
    Today it wasn't raining so I took it out for a shot and to get it zeroed. First up at 25yds I put two Winchester factory PP 150 gr touching and a 180 gr slightly above. I moved out to about 100 yds and fine tuned it with the 180 gr Noslar hand loads. I moved to another target and the shot printed 1.75 inch high for a 200 yds zero I then reset the turrets to zero then wound the turret out to it's max to see what moa I had left. I have 32 which will get me to about 1000 yds but the 1000 ft pounds energy runs out at about 900yds so I probably would never use it over 600- 700 yds on game.
    After dialing back to zero I fired another shot and it printed very close to the other, real happy with both rifle and scope.
    I tried one shot at 340 yds and it impacted a little high which would be explained by the extra speed my loads are doing( MOA chart worked out for muzzle velocity of 2700 not 2827 fps)
    This must be what they call a fast rifle as 2827 fps from a 22 inch barrel with a 180gr bullet isn't to bad at all. Recoil is stiff but manageable and the trigger brakes at 3 pounds even. The only minor problem seems to be the magazine with the odd round miss feeding if I work the bolt slowly.Name:  P1020953.jpg

    Looks like you're onto a winner. Those Noslers are supposed to be superb on game even at slightly slower velocities, and I've found them to be very accurate too.

    I use them in my Tikka 300WM as well and they are pretty detructive ( Ballistic Tip more so than the Accubond) but they put the animals down quick. I remember years ago when I had my BAR 30 06 and using 150 gr Ballistic Tips. I shot a good size (110 kg gutted )stag about this time of year and had a hell of a job to keep him down. The impact would flatten him but he kept getting up but after the fourth round he stayed down. It put me off the 150 gr but the 180gr are a different kettle of fish, much much better. Supposed to still open up at 1800 fps so at my velocity of 2827 that should be about 700 yds from memory.
