Gidday from New Zealand

I have been lurking around this site for a while now and am enjoying alot of the reading here.

I live in the top end of the South Island of New Zealand, long range hunting is new to me but I have made a few 'longer shots' with .223 and 7MM 08. Have just finished setting up a Sendero 7MM SAUM which will get a good working out on animals in the next six months.



Longest shots to date were 525yds on Sika deer with 7MM 08 and 512yds on goat with .223.

In the past I have done alot of bushstalking and alpine tops hunting, heres a few pics.
