    Up to around 25-26 magpies from the same sociable spot on the deck - they mob up and fly around the homestead about 45-60 mins after first light, and land in the same trees over and over. Whack whack whack. Very predictable birds, in terms of their behaviour. Using dead ones as a lure works every time, just prop them up on a piece of bent wire.

    The mob is looking a bit light on numbers now, only 4-5 left. Longest with the .22LR so far, 141m. Occasionally I cheat, if I can see one trying to hide at about 200m+ over the river, I blow it up with the .223. No mercy!

    Velocity is thrilling,but diameter does the real killing.

    I went out this morning for another rabbit shoot, started spotlighting at 5 am then got a few when it turned light as well.

    More back straps for the Pud to make him big and strong

    2 more magpies today, streched the legs on the ruger out to 120 yards, proving deadly so far
