    Good stuff JoshChiv
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    So have you guys worked out what to allow for the Electrromagnetic effect the overhead high voltage lines have on your projectiles .Faradays right hand law states that if you wrap your right hand round a cable with your thumb pointing in the direction of current flow your fingers will indicate the direction of the circular Electromagnetic field generated .So assuming the current is flowing down range the field will be clockwise as you look downrange .Therefore if you are shooting off the left hand stand your projectiles will be pulled high and left ,If shooting off right hand stand they will be pushed low and right Its pissing down here and I have nothing better to do .Sad I know

    I had thought about the effect of the power lines as well but then thought about a coper and lead projectile and arrived at nah as an answer!

    When your using your 30/30 the bullet drops out of the barrel any way. So you better calc spin drift on those long shots over 50 metres.

    Haha didn't think too much about the power lines but they would have no effect on the projectile itself

    Hi Joshchiv. Do you have to be a member of the pistol club to shoot there? Or is there someone to contact for permission? Cheers Jon

    No you don't have to be a member, but it is a private range, you will have to get in contact with a person who works at panpac, as this is the way you get access to the range

    Looks like a choice set up there JoshChiv.
    “For us hunting wasn’t a sport. It was a way to be intimate with nature, that intimacy providing us with wild unprocessed food free from pesticides and hormones and with the bonus of having been produced without the addition of great quantities of fossil fuel. . . . . . . . We lived close to the animals we ate. We knew their habits and that knowledge deepened our thanks to them and the land that made them.”
