    Do you have enough gongs?
    Can bring some down depending on mode of transport.

    6.5x55 should handle that.

    From what I keep reading Dundees 22lr should get there.

    Distances similar to brads setup would probably work quite well I wood have thought? Didn't only one person hit the 2k?

    2k is plenty, Most people bring hunting rifles & are happy shooting a mixture of sizes & types from 200-800, then a few different sizes out to 1500. But to be honest most peoples rigs aren't capable of going mush past that consistently, even a 338 will normal start to max out around 1500-1600 ( even though Alonzo proved that wrong this year ) So while 2k plus is cool to have, there's only a small handful of guys that will join that "dick waving" contest.

    @jakewire we can have a chat in a couple of weeks time. I’ve got 500,300,200,150,100mm gongs and can probably get them down there easy enough.

    I have bought a vacuum enlarger so depending on whether it works or not I may have a wee wave myself next year.

    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

    The long range sight on my 303 says 2800yds, so 2000 metres should be well within range.
    When will the date be known? will it be the same or different.
