Gday from South East Queensland, Australia

Gday all,
Names Mic, from the town of Closeburn, Queensland.
I spend a fair bit of time out here chasing Red Deer, Pigs, Feral dogs and Feral Cats. Currently shooting a Winchester Model 70 in 270 win. Looking to get into something a bit louder, along the lines of a 375VM or the like. Looks like I'm in the right spot to get the lowdown on this.
I also love fishing and camping with my fiance and we are both in the Rural Fire Service with heaps of wildfire experience.
I am currently doing study to join the police.

Cheers
Mic

    Welcome, glad to have you here. Lots of good folks and lots of good info. Enjoy.

    Roy, VM stands for Very Mean which is what most 375's are. oh I made myself laugh...sorry...couldn't pass that one up.

    ah ha! I sense an opportunity for compromise. Maybe you could negotiate for a whole lot smaller wedding for a bit smaller cartridge. Such as a 375 SnipeTac.

    Neither of you would hardly notice the difference.
