Going to get my .308 sorted so I can go for a shoulder/chest shot next time. Got a few different ammo's to try so will see what groups well.

    VC - I was aiming mid/upper neck, would rather miss than wound.
    The great thing about a upper neck shot,its either down or un harmed/survivable graze etc.

    Bloody funny!

    I spent a lot of time flying between Lae, 9 mile and Wau/wafi Area.
    We stayed in 9 mile for a while. Always a bit scary going through 5mile to the pub!

    I recognised those Hills.
    A lot of history there. In WW2 the Japs were based in Lae. Marched to Wau (over the hills in the distance) and the Aussie had a small group based at Wau.
    Japanese saw it as a strategic place to base prior to taking Port Moresby.
    I can't recall the exact numbers but it was something like 5000 japansese with 500 aussie on the Wau strip.
    The aussies could se them marching down the Kuni grass hills.
    The weather cleared just in time for the DC3s to get over the hills from POM to land at Wau to get extra troops and aid to the aussies.
    Hectic fighting occurred and Aussies managed to push them back.
    Next to Wau is a old bomber that could quite climb the valley after being shot up to get back to pom. They plopped it into a side of a hill.
    I will dig out photos of that.

    I miss PNG flying.

    Went to the range today for a play and found someone had left 60 once fired (new empty Remington packets were there too) 7mm08 cases in the brass bin.
    I took them home and have had a very satisfying time necking them up to 30 cal.

    Dairy farmers are never happy, because of too much rain, not enough rain, not enough sun, too much sun, poor workers, fertiliser costs, etc all brought by having to get out of bed at ridiculous times.
