    memorable shot today because of the challenging wind conditions was this little critter . . with his body position straight towards me only his head/shoulders were visable.

    Nailed this bunny at 346m this arvo, 9mph wind from 7 o'clock and could only see his head and shoulders.

    Shot from the corner of the fence by the vineyards.

    22 Terminator 75 Amax at 2896fps.

    good wind calling skills/shooting there @300_BLK

    had a good start this morning with the first shot of the day . . . which turned out to be the longest shot of the day

    tried a few times at critters past 500yrds but the wind was just to tough for me to call . . .

    always the wind . . .

    i got so pissed off today i set up a target at 550yrds . . . first group i allowed 4inches of drift, actual drift was 10inches
    in the time it took to walk back and setup for the next shot the wind value doubled
    i allowed 10inches for the next group . . . this time it was 18inches
    varminting is so much more difficult to range shooting . . to me

    but when it all comes together it sure is a buzz
    not so much for the Rabbit

    Please don't take this the wrong way guys, (I am just curious as my marksmanship leaves a bit to be desire) but what is your hit/miss ratio on such small targets at those distances (350 yards +)?
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Before it shot the rabbit I set up my 6” gong and hit it 4/6 times at 320m

    I was actually doing some long range gong shooting when the bunnies ran out of cover.

    Love the sound of a good hit on the rabbits eh “thwok”!!

    Had a good week off work. Son came down from N. Island on leave forn Airforce and we took some chill out time. Over a hundred bunnies for the week including 29 before breakfast this morning. Been getting some great results with strelok, now to shoot better, often just that wee way out with my shooting

    The boy has finally decided to match his RPR with a suitable scope so a Gen 2 PST on its way. Be cool when he goes back north and leaves his rifles with me for safe keeping !!

    Also had a case separation on the last shoot of the evenin a couple of nights ago. A reverse bore-snake from the muzzle end did the trick
