    308 Norma Mag

    I have had a 308 Norma Mag built on the trusty old M17 and chucked a March 2.5x25-42 for a crack at Sambar hunting in Victoria for a week starting from the 27th of this month. load consists of 200 grain Swift A-frame, Norma brass, Mag primer and lots of powder. If I have any luck I'll post some happy snaps.

    Cheers Rob

    Yep I would like to see that report
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    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
