    Kia ora all

    Thanks admin for accepting the request and hi all,

    Joe from Christchurch, keen on hunting above and below water. Recently purchased a few items from forum members and enjoy reading the banter and knowledge this site provides.

    Most recent firearm purchase is a 300wm from @buzzman so will be working up a load for that once I get my hands on @25/08IMPís Swaro Z5.

    If anyone has any recommendations on rings for this set up feel free to send through a PM.

    Load wise Iím looking at running 208gr ELD-M, Norma brass, Federal 215 primers and AR2217 powder. Will give an update on the forum once Iíve got these humming.

    Cheers

    If you got it from Buzz then Sako Optilocks would be a good match

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Hello, welcome
    I'll be interested to hear how the 208M's go in the 300wsm.
    200 EDL-X might be one to look at as well.

    Sako optilock ringmounts are all one height mate and yup they will mount that scope on that gun perfectly.

    Not sure if this attachments going to show. Looks like the ringmounts are all low which will fit 48-56mm objective outer diameter. Which theoretically will be fine for the 44mm objective and allow room for scope covers.

    Welcome aboard, looks like you have a sense of humour and resonable taste in gear...
    Good to hear there is another local spearo on board, not too long now and the water temps will have the old haku in our neck of the woods
