    Two rabbits tonight... with the tires on the safari.

    Plus about 150 with the savage/thermal.
    Also a handful of hedgepigs and a cat.

    Love it when everything is running smoothly.

    Must admit the semi-auto is unbeatable for cleaning up clusters.

    Didn't look so good after copping a 40gr Fiocchi sub between the eyes at 30 mtrs though

    Was a good hunt, been after this little prick for a month or two also, 70 mtrs with the sub's .....Name:  black rabbit.jpg

    I went for a walk late yesterday afternoon with the weatherby mark XXII 22lr. Plenty of rabbits around and I managed to bag 13, unlucky for them. Mostly head shots at about 50 to 60m, its a great little rifle. Although the first shot was a miss, too high but I spotted it and was able to make the required adjustment as the rabbit just sat there. I had over estimated the distance as it was a steep down hill shot. Even shot 2 left handed to stay behind cover. Gave some to mum and dad, some to my sister and the rest went in the freezer for us or the dogs. Still plenty there as when I went to retrieve the piles of carcasses I had left while walking I saw more in the head lights of the bike.

    Proof, sorry about the crap photo, got to remember to take the phone out of the case so the flash isn't slightly covered, take a better camera or take photo's before it gets dark.Name:  20170219_205720.jpg

    Grabbed the unique for a change, I find it always feels a little strange swapping around rifles. Few shots later and I had the trigger feel back . 23 shot.
