    rabbit hill/lake lyndon range

    Where exactly is this?

    Heard its a good place to do a bit of long range work.

    Is there targets/gongs or boards to put targets?

    Whats access like?

    Cheers

    Was there 10 days ago, the gongs need a little work(900m one was missing). I have another one ready to go in but horizontal rain prevented me putting them up.

    While you're there, have a look for the 100mm one I put up at short range, it seemed to dissappear some time ago. . .

    Will do Red. The once at approximately 400m was missing and there was a green rock instead. Also, I shot the chain holding the 530m plate too, so just hanging of one at the moment. I'll see what we can do there to improve thing and get it back to how it was.

    @redbang have you got the new 338 rig up and running? It's been a while since I've seen you.

    Sort of, I've got the new brake on it now, but have yet to rezero it. Been a bit slack since the Gunslinger, and can't do the long stuff up there till a mate with a decent 4WD wants to go too Bit hard to get to the big gully in a toyota van !

    I've got about 300 pheasants to help release this Saturday, pistol club Sunday morning, but and can do the afternoon. Current forecast is snow to 400m and the range is at 815, so might be shit.

    So, next weekend?
