    Got the beauty zeroed in and I have no bipod or range finder so it was just awesome shooting.

    Pretty happy with that group.So I tryed a longer distance.

    Possum trapper joined me at plate shoot. Neckshot cheers for the hunk of steel.

    This was my shooting position the plate is on the second hill follow the tyre tracks and you can see it,bit of greyish metal below the hill.

    You members are probably thinking what the fark, that plate,its got holes in it. Yes its not as savvy as your hard barstard gong plates but Neckshot figured if i can't hear the ping on the steel it went right through the holes...now thats accurracy right there cheers again Neckshot

    Very happy with this rifle got a little video footage might get added one day. Possum trapper pinged the plate also and got a little bit of scope eye but the ping at that distance was a buzz for us anyway.


    Got it sorted a hunting we will go.

    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    Looks like it's easily shooting "Minute of Deer" Dundee.

    Time to get out in the bush with your boys and "Blood It In" in the manner to which it deserves.

    Tell Possum Trapper to watch out for the Scope especially when shooting up hill as it gets bloody hard to see anything through your scope when you suddenly have copious amounts of warm blood streaming into your shooting eye.

    Cheers

    Yea got ya P38 he did git a smack to his scone last night but that wasn't the shot unfortunately I missed the video clip of that.

    The one that smacked his scone was the shot that hit the plate and PT had the plate shoot on video but we missed the clip to the head.

    Nothing serious just a bump but fark it was funny where I was standing.
