    Been talking to, too many of your mates that are back from Afgan. Then again maybe not. It is common over there to hump goats, bit like Taihape?

    Where is it? I remember a cheap one at reloaders then not long after it was sold saw it on trademe. Would be funny if it was the same one. How cheap? the one I saw first at reloaders was around $600. Probably worth re barreling

    Sorry mate. Just never knew you could get accurate raped goats? Thought they might be a bit wonky afterwards.

    What a load of nonsense. Load them up with 62 gr Barnes and they drop everything to 400m with 1 shot.
