if you have the urge to get out and have a go at these wee critters,or want to try out your long range rifles and want something better than gongs well guys get out and do it....
there are plenty of them around at the moment and not hard to find....PM me if you need to but most any block is worth a look
If we had a long range guy with us this last weekend he wouldv'e gone through 50 rounds without any bother
shooting these wee peskies is the most fun you can have with your pants on,if we dont get stuck in and reduce numbers the dreaded green rain will fall.

I read somewhere that the distance was estimated at 5 - 700 yards for this mob.

I have the urge to splat me some wallabies.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

Have to hatch a plan Hackmeat. Might be busy at work next couple of weeks though. Need more ammo too, getting low on my cheap stuff after last time up the hill. Not too keen on using the powershoks on wallies at $2.50 a shot Cry

Hopefully going out tomorrow if this rain stops. I'm glad the 222 is cheaper to shoot than that. Especially with my brother reloading.
