    PAKI PAKI shooting range

    I hear theres a new shooting range being built south of paki paki, would be keen to lend a hand if need be, can lay blocks if that helps, also keen on getting into F-class competition. any info would be appreciated

    As an entry into F-Class you CANNOT go wrong with a Savage F Class 6.5-284
    Shoot it out, then screw on a Shehane if you want 7mm

    One is on my list, but being such a gun whore, there is about 50 others on that list!

    I will second that Spanners, very hard to go past the Savage 12F's for F Class shooting, i have one in 6mmbr that is a tack driver, and have just finished setting up my 6.5-284 version, after some quick load development, it looks like its going to shoot as well as the BR.

    The Pakipaki range has been around for a while. Have thought about trying to get out there but never have. They have some very slick remote targets I have been advised (ultrasound I think). I think they offered an invitation to some of the local Deer Stalker clubs sometime last year.

    Tony Loughlan (Loughlan Hall & Thompson) is your man to contact.

    Not sure they have an open membership though.

    Cheers
