    I see you do alot of long rang shoot.
    I am looking at getting a Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor.
    What scope would you recommend, middle of the road budget wise?
    I will be punching paper and steel mostly.
    Cheers.

    I am very envious. I have wanted one of these ever since discovering that Aoraki Ammo imported a batch.

    That's a sweet looking course. Would love to get into shooting like that, get fit or die trying that's for sure.

    very cool, mate that rope work looks like it would push the old heart rate and breathing right up there, nice work, cool gun, I like the caliber also.
    Has a SKS for awhile, lots of fun to shoot.

    Did you boys get them from Aoraki Ammo or do they predate that shipment?

    Now that's what I call a proper course of fire. Would be nice to see more competitive shooting done in a more "biathlon" style where physical fitness plays a role. I've been toying with a summer biathlon style shoot of walking/running/hiking and shooting at various distances for a while. I feel like it would really benefit competition shooters and hunters, as it plays into both roles pretty heavily.

    In regards to the rifle - absolutely love them. Great knock around bush guns. Only complaint is that rebarreling can be tricky if you don't have a fitted mount to hold it in... but really... that's not a major issue for 99.99% of people

    You know about the police's new definition of E cat length?

    Not sure about your guns OAL, but it's now measure by police from the stock folded, just a heads up!

    Awesome video, fun to watch from a kiwi that's for sure!

    It's still 762mm so the VZ is fine.

    What's the barrel length and the OAL (stock folded)?

    Would like to have one in this setup and didn't think it'd be possible due to the new police policy.
