    Big Bore Shoot Kurow, 10th 11th March 2018

    Ok Guy I've been talking with Stug and Jakewire and settled for 10/11th March for this years event
    Format will be similar to last year.
    Meet at Kurow 10.00am. Make way up to station woolshed and set up in the shed for the night. Depending on numbers I'll take along the Kai cooker and provide dinner for us , provide your own breakfast
    We are intending setting up some different targets as well as the original targets, we want people to have a fun day.
    After dinner hope to have a spot light for wallaby so bring a small bore to. space may be limited for this but will try and give everyone a shot.
    Those interested please reply to post and either Stug or myself will be in touch

    I'm keen as well, but yours is even bigger than mine. Iron sighted 303 be ok?
    It will be weather dependent for me though. Leave a wee spot under a rock for me. I'll self cater

    I'm sure it will be just fine. 319 projectile that's bigger than the 300 that my 375 H&H uses
    look forward to meeting you

    sorry for not replying sooner
    be just fine. First year I only had the 6.5 x55 but that soon changed acquired with the help of Stug the .375 H&H. Be aware it is addictive

    Thanks Harry. Not 319 grains, point 319 diameter (as opposed to normal 8mm at .323)

    right on, I am going to try and rework my shifts, in out of Canada, to be back for this years meet.
    Got plenty of time, to get back one of my med bores, 358 win or 9.3x62.

    Here is a nice looking .450 Rigby for someone. (Nothing to do with me) @Kiwi Greg you could fire one in each hand!
