What calibre are you shooting.


270. Win is my only gun  Wink Yes bit overpowered, blows big holes or bits off, but I take it as a training on big game Tongue Cant see point of having gunsafe full of "toys" when you won't pull them out often enough...

Haven't tried hare with it yet, had a itchy finger in winter at 13 Mile Bush when I saw 2 hare bucks trying to hump one doe all at once  Grin I thought that 3 hares with one shot would be good score but they were moving too fast  Cheesy

shooting a wallaby thats moving at full speed is a challenge alright. In scrub even with shotgun.

Hi MIckey D
I've moved up to CHCH from Southland and my new hunting mate is a South African who is green to NZ hunting but keen as....  I've been thinking about Wallabies to get his new rifle broken in but figured they would be more across the private blocks in Waimate through McKenzie region.  If there is a DOC block we can wander across for a few wallabies can you PM me in the general direction?
I'm a bit lost up here in the tropical North Canterbury region.

Very true, was cleaning up some goats and thought my mate was missing a few to many with his 270 but absolutely nailing them with the odd head shot. He wasn't but the goats were taking a while to work out they were fatally shoot with a through and through chest shot. I didn't have that problem with my 22-250 Grin

ive found the perfect round for wallabys,,90 gr hollow point in 264,i shoot all in the guts and they just collapse on spot,,even better than a head shot
  

It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler
