    Anyone heading out to the Auckland range tomorrow?

    Hey, is anyone planning on going out to the Auckland Deer Stalkers range tomorrow afternoon that doesn't mind taking someone out there that hasn't been before? Think the weathers gonna be a bit average, but I need to spend a bit more time with my rifle.......

    I will be heading out in the afternoon, with my kids.
    They voted not to do the morning so they could sleep in and get practice on call of duty first... ;P
    PM me where you are as i dont mind picking you up if you are on the way and not to far off the beaten track. I'm in Epsom, so its pretty much straight onto the northwestern for me...

    You need to bring your earmuffs, and also $20 if you are not a DS member.
    You can buy range flags there for $2, and targets for $0.50 each...

    No problem, hope you had a good time.
    Weather was a bit so-so, and it was busy for a sunday afternoon.
    Though we did not let off as many rounds as we normally do, it was good to get out, and was pleased to put a few rounds through my new rifle... very happy.

    I'm hoping to head out there this Sunday morning - I'm hoping it won't be too busy as there's an All Blacks game on.

    Check POI and chrony any difference in full sized vs neck sized 65gn SGK and 69gn SMK loads in .223 Sako

    You might not recognise me when I get there.

    I'll be there again this weekend, as cancelled my trip away.
    Going to tweak the .308 and .270 loads.
