    Yep, pretty windy. We moved slightly further up the valley to try and get out of the wind a bit. It certainly blew my projectiles off course

    Thanks heaps to Stug and Harry and all of the other guys. Was a great couple of days and a fun night of spotlighting. Crack up to find out @stug is my old high school science teacher, even funnier considering he used to take groups to the local smallbore shooting club, where I caught the shooting bug.
    The .444 didn't disappoint despite it being it's first time out of the safe and having thrown a cheap Eotech clone on top (due to lack of alternative) and losing verticle zero somewhere between sighting it and shooting on the day. Still managed to get it on the 215m steel with some help from the Artillery spotter. Just need to upload some of the videos i took

    Just got back from the 10 day hunting trip, total of 2,500km starting at the shoot in Kurow, to Cromwell, Ettrick, Outtram and Taieri Gorge then back to Motunau for a dive on the way home to Nelson. Came home with 2 Fallow, 3 Reds, 6 Pigs and our limits of Paua, aside from the 40 odd Wallabies, 60 Hares, 3 cats and 100's of goats culled from a mates farm, so was a productive week.
    Looking forward to tying the Big Bore shoot into next years hunting trip.

    I think about 7 months to privately import.
    Not so bad as I only 5 days ago i got a call from the NZ importers agent to inform me that my rear sight for the CZ527 had arrived.
    That only took 361 days from the date ordered!?

    If we go for the last weekend of April again then probably wait until early next year.
