    Got treated to some decent bunny territory on Sunday afternoon. Took my 700 VS .223 and my mate his .204 T3 varminter. Started shooting about 4.45 and we gave up before 7.30, more than 90 bunnies later. Closest over 120yds, most 180+ and at least ten over 300yds. Clipped one first shot at 400 and scared other crapless at similar range. Was very pleased with two successive solid hits at 275yds holding 10-12" into the breeze

    So anyone who claims RCD has been useful needs to have a big re-think.

    My first video. Its shit. But its an "effort" nonetheless. I mean, I tried. The light was rubbish, that's the reason, nothing to do with equipment or operator's errors...

    Longest bunny: 275m
    Longest hare: 266m
    Longest fuckin' lucky hare: 360m (technical term: missed)

    I did however manage to confirm that the Super Varmint .223 50gr V-Max is high once it goes past 300m, using the old "shoot a post" method. Which means either its even faster than I thought or the BC is higher, so tomorrow if we have bugger all wind I'll drop test it again properly.

    We couldn't get the camera to work for the last three hares, too dark. One lucky mongrel got a face on head shot at 180m, and looked like he'd encountered a guillotine. Great fun out shooting with the wife, she's damn good and unfortunate that she didn't get her two long hares recorded due to the darkness.

    A nice stroll around the raspberry orchard on a nice warm balmy evening last night with the CZ 452 22lr. Longest shot only 103 yards with subs.

    Is there a reason or just personal preference?

    Brining it sucks all the blood back into the bones somehow. I think it can also help add moisture.

    I normally always cook it long and slow in a stock anyway, braising basically. Brown each piece in hot pan first then a few hours low and slow in the oven in a stock I make with lots of tasty stuff in it.

    Ha nice, my dish has streaky bacon in it too. It's a bit of work but tastes amaising.
