    Nice, good spot to shoot that. If you go a bit further down the road you can shoot to 1000 yds reasonably easily.

    Generally speaking I don't shoot animals much beyond 300m. Generally. You have to walk over there to get it anyway, and may as well get as close as possible and make sure of it.

    Will have to look for that next time, was extremely busy the other day, people everywhere. Won't be long til it's locked up I suppose between shooters, motorbikes and 4wds

    Nice work! For what it's worth, I'm subscribed to you on YouTube and I didn't get a notification of your last 2 uploads.
    Have you checked their performance on game yet?

    Thanks - Hmm, I'll have to check my channel settings.

    No, I haven't shot an animal yet - only did the first load development a week ago and have been too busy with work/flu to get out for a hunt. Soon!

    While it is plainly obvious you had a safe shooting position I cannot help but wonder what the anti spin on it would be?

    Gun nut shoots high powered sniper rifle from road?
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.
