    I haven't shot anything since friday


    But my favourite previous random object shooting was a small clay statue that a friends sister had made but didn't want, which I kindly disintegrated with the 308.

    I use clay targets for practicing longer range stuff ... put them out in the paddock on a line of pinetree stumps

    If you can hit a clay repeatedly at range then you'll be fine on a deer pig goat or Wildebeest ( @ebf )

    sometimes the 223 round go straight through them if you hit them dead centre ..

    theyre also great for practicing offhand with the 22 .. start in close and work outwards to 25 yards

    makes a freeking mess in my paddocks but

    Pieces of gib make a good target board
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Usually just a box or tree with a spot of tail paint for a target, but did use a cow that gotten bloat and died recently on the egde of the rubish hole to test out some home made shotgun slugs.

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

    In my younger days we had access to excess catering cans of white sauce, bolonaise sauce and baked beans anything from a .223 up would splatter them in an epic fashion. these days Id take them down to the shelter or salvy
