    243 and 270 hate amongst meat shooters is a thing for a reason.

    Yeah the pill selection has improved a lot, I've only had a 270 1 or 2 months and last nights stag was deer number 5 and all have been boom flops.
    I think Ryan sums it up best " the 270 is a man's gun"

    This is fun.

    I and others I know don't like a caliber for what ever reason.
    So they're wrong. They're shit shots.
    Whaaa whaaa whaaa
    It's like dealing with a bunch of butt hurt, vegan SJW's

    Caliber racism. Its now a thing

    Youíd have to think that a person that shoots for there livelihood would know what works and what doesnít. If the .243 and .270 donít work...it just ainít gonna work...

    Glad my next gun is a 303 then. Poor deer wont know what hit them.
    They are that scared of it from the old stories passed down the deer family from generation to generation about its mighty power they will fall over just from the smell of the bullet like frightened rabbits.
    If that doesn't work ill get the 416 out.

    Hey fellas,

    Could I please have a show of hands of who may be willing to offer a few hours of firearm storage, look after any antlers or horns, or be keen on driving a few km's (you'll be paid in advance of course for time/petrol etc) to drop off a container of food in a specified location?

    Locations: Suburban and Rural areas across Southland, Otago, Westcoast, Canterbury, Marlborough - and anywhere in between; South Island only.

    Thanks.
