    Well done CD. Will have to visit some day soon.
    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

    Thanks guys yep very gratifying after all the range time. Yes bob bout fukin time allright. Rushy its on the cards mate just gettin the house sorted. I was actually after some venison but there barks tood me they had me sust. Then out in the swedes I saw some young pork and did my thing on shooter and dialed them in , I was just practicing dry firing and not intending to shoot one then a nice 100lber walked out so I held on the shoukder and squeezed of the shot and few seconds later a solid whump was heard of a good connecting shot. I lost the picture in the scope so picked up the rangefinder and the pig was out of sight with the rest of the mob non the wiser and carring on feeding. Walked back to the truck and drove round to the base of the swede paddok and went for a look. First lesson Ive learnt is to take much better visual reference from the firing point as ive searched for about 40 minutes and still havent found it but I will find it today waste high swedes makes it easy to loose an animal but the dog can prove her worth when I go back down. I am confident of a clean kill as it was a good 100meters from the boundry and I would have picked up a running pig before it covered that distance. Anyway a big thanks to tuiman for the most accurate rifle ive ever owned a couple of mates that through there help we have taught each other the ways of longer range shooting through trial and error. I will get some pics up later today. Cheers for the good comments aswell.

    Yeah mate, know what you mean about getting better visuals on where to look.

    I learnt (the hard way) to always take the range finder with you when retrieving yur kill and use it to triangulate your position. Just range back to the spot you fired from until you get the same distance as the shot. If you get two distances from two location then its even better (just like a map and compass really).

    Good luck, I hope you find it today
