    Not the smartest bunny in the world. Sat about 50 yards away completely oblivious to our presence. Son tried a tricky shot down hill from prone that did not connect. Lucky dad was ready with the follow up shot off hand. 55gm Fiocche .223 did the job and saved much of the gutting ;-) Good out come after loosing a nanny earlier in the evening. Hit her at 200 yards watched her drop. Had to climb a steep bluff to recover only for her to stand up and run off when we got to her. Tracked the blood trail for nearly a kilometer before she made it to a cliff we could not scale. Serves me right for not taking the rifle for the recovery climb!Name:  black bunny.jpg

    back to the motor later for a coffee & changed over to the .204R to catch a few more who thought they were safely out of range

    cheers @berg243 the No.1 is a good look rifle alright and very cool to use.

    i like the idea of single shots, even my bolt action varmint rifles have singleshot adapters fitted.

    cheers @Nibblet . . . . near perfect conditions, very slight breeze coming from the left then swinging around and coming back from the right so no wind allowance given

    stoked . . . wanted to break the 500yrd barrier this year, came a bit earlier than expected, so all smiles
