    Now I can resume my quest for my first deer

    Ok admittedly I did book this up with forlongs seeing they gave me access to my card again so I can keep saving for other things and scratch the trigger finger while I am at it. Was originally going to get a ruger american in 7mm08 but temptation got the better of me and could not resist the rifle rings and GPS (garmin Etrex 20) package I saw and I deserved something worth a bit more than $600 for the rifle after all of the shit I have been through.

    Can't wait to get into them fecking hills after finding somewhere to sight it in rather than heading to the taupo range even though it would be a good road trip and i do have to go there in a few weeks to pick something up that has been waiting down there for me to finish paying off and collect for a while.

    Thanks @Toby as you probably guessed it is a remington 700 with detachable mag the scope is a bushnell trophy XLT with DOA600 reticle (didn't have enough for the Loopy VX2 I was going to put on it) and the caliber is .270 as they did not have one in 7mm08 available that was not stainless so I settled for next best in my caliber choice.

    Got 9 norma 270 cases in perfect condition (someone must have chucked them at the range, could not find #10 hehe) if you want them. Just flick me your address and I'll put them in the post.

    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

    Hi Tahr
    I really appreciate that if you want I am happy to pay you for them but will be a while before I can do any reloading as I have to get that gear back together once I have sorted out my truck license upgrade and a few other things.
