    There is a good howa for sale. All set up eith a good scope too. Save yourself some coin and have a good rifle ready to hunt with.

    If you can't beat them, beat them.
    They will be expecting you to join them, so you'll have the element of surprise.

    My advice to you. Buy a rifle like a howa for 799 new(Broncos) or one 2nd hand like we showed you and chuck a good scope on it like a vx5, z5 swaro etc. Howas shoot well but I see too many guys with flash rifles and comparatively shit scopes which is what is really the limiting factor as most rifles will shoot moa~

    Cheers mate but I've already got a vx3 3.5 - 10 x50 that I bought off my old man just on the hunt for a higher end rifle to put it on, and only really wanting a 308 cause my old man's got heaps of brass and dies so he can teach me how to reload for it till I can set myself up!

    I'm selling this Browning X-Bolt but if it's out of your price range just buy a Howa 1500 as noted above - both are made in Japan with the action sized to the caliber.

    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.
