    Just back from a rabbit clearance exercise at a friend’s lifestyle block. 13 rabbits. Two sniped from a bedroom window (a first for me) and a few tricky shots. Not the huge numbers that you guys are getting, or long distance shooting, but I was happy with my performance and the CZ452. Friend was happy too!

    no easy answer for you @Shearer . . . it all depends on how i feel on the day and what rifle i am using, if i push the limits of my skill the miss ratio goes up, some days i push a bit harder than others . . i like to start off with a few hits to warmup then move out further untill i am well out of my comfort zone . . . keeping in mind that the misses you can learn from as well.

    the post i put up recently of a head shot at 355yds was memorable because of the conditions, the wind was howling thru the hills, i had started with the .22lr in the morning and only changed to the .243 in the afternoon when i couldnt take any more standing up shots because of the speed and heavy gusts, even sitting shots were tough with the rimfire.

    a memorable miss recently was when the bullet hit 3 inches above the critter but perfectly inline at 570yds . .. call me crazy but that is fun

    without a picture . .. it never happened !

    The objective was about 150 behind the tree, he lived to tell the story
    The hare in the next shot was up hil at 160, through the chest
    The rabbit was about 100 metres, just a small bugger, had white spots on the liver, first time I’ve encountered that on this farm?
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    Decided to work off some of the xmas food with a walk over a friends farm (that I havent visited in some time). Also the first time using red dot in the field. Total tally was 2 rabbits, 3 hares and 4 possums. Due to no magnification a couple of possums got away while I was confirming they wernt Moreporks (they were on 2 occasions).Name:  20171229_230249.jpg
