Re: try to built a good longrange rifle from a very isolated country

Thank gary, the photo as to be rotate to 90 degree(i forgot to do it before sending it)
So the group is actually on the right of the target, this is due to my bad flitching. try to get over it but not easy so far.


And yes, CODE4 he is right, its a very good place for RUSA deer hunting.

fabrice,
Sounds like you did all right! That isn't too shabby of a group for factory ammo and 200 m. Looks to be around 1/2 moa.

Tanks sambo 3006, i was also very surprise than a factory ammo could produce that sort of group at 200m, and like i say it was the cheapest factory ammo i could find here in new caledonia.

It was a valid question. Sorry I havent hunted Rusa before or heard of it. Next time I'm over there I will give it a try.

ile des pins is a beauty, i fly over there may be 3 or 4 times a week since five years now, and each time i felt so lucky to contempled this beautiful place.

Unfortunately, i've not been in US yet but i'm planning to get overthere.
Last year my wife and i spend 2 weeks in the canadian rocky moutain trekking during the falls, the treks was in jasper and banff national park.

I felt in love with the rocky mountains!!!! i things the rocky mountains in north american continent are among and maybe the most beautiful mountains on earth.

i've been in the french alpes, in the french pyrenees, i spent 5 years in new zealand south island, so i've see the NZ south alpes.

But nothing comes close to the rocky's !!!
So i can't wait to see the rockys from the us side.

My wife has been after me for some time to visit Caledonia. I told her about you and your rifle and the hunting. I to did not know about the fine hunting that was available. When we do make it over, how does the use of a weapon work? I probably will not bring my own.

Please forgive me for trying to hijack your thread.
