    Any interest in a South Island Big Bore shoot?

    Anyone keen on a big bore shoot in the South Island?
    No dates yet or even a place to do it. I thought something like an informal shoot at a range of targets out to 100 yds, off sticks and freehand. Maybe a moving target or two. Followed by a BBQ and Bullshit session. Somewhere we could camp, stay overnight would be awesome.
    .375 and up.

    I am sure the .270 has shot lots of African game

    Fly in to CHCH and I'll take you if you want. Working on a possible property at the moment but nothing in concrete.

    I would also be up for it but will wait untill the dates are finalised before commiting to attending. Which gun to bring,thats going to take some brain time.
    Velocity is thrilling,but diameter does the real killing.
