I was thinking the same, not much left when you take the big .338's out of the equation. That is why I was thinking of setting the barrel back to .338WM.

Better still, just get the barrel re-stamped as a .300 RUM and continue to shoot it as a .338 Edge. The flat foots would never know the difference unless they mic the projectile!

You are dead right there. In Aus there is over 800,000 licenced shooters and if they all stood together the government would not be able to force these changes on us.

Re: ADA is anti LRH

Is it legal in Australia to knowingly stamp the wrong caliber on a rifle?

No it is not and I would not do it, but it shows how frustrated we are getting with the gun laws down here.

Now to have NO caliber stamp on a rifle may be different?

Or just call it a .338/30 and leave off the RUM part and keep them guessing. They know nothing about wildcats. It could be a .30/30 necked up to .338 for all they know.
Here is a list of cartridges that the South Australian Police will no longer permit shooters to own in that State. They are holding the existing rifles until they are sold interstate or modified.
The calibers listed are
50 BMG
460 Steyr
408 Cheytac
375 Cheytac
416 Barrett
338 Lapua Magnum
and some pistol cartridge that apparently punches through Kevlar helmets.

Not sure on .338 Edge etc yet.

Re: ADA is anti LRH

if you want some good sport ask your law makers to explain why these calibres are so much more dangerous than xyz (list a few similar calibres)? in the uk here our police have rifle calibres we're not allowed , now tell me why they need a 338 lapua?

believe me , this is only the thin end of the wedge!

you have to act now or you will end up in the same sorry state we are in the UK

Re: ADA is anti LRH

Norm if you have not already seen the emails made it to AHN caused a shitfight and the ADA has come out and said that "The ADA encourages legitmate debate on ethics amongst its membership. The extract from the email does not represent the views of the ADA and is not a statement by the ADA."
You can find it in Politics & Current Affairs > Firearms law review > ADA and firearms bans??
It is good to see that pretty much everyone on there is against all firearms restrictions even if they don't like LRH.

The boys on the AHN have done a good job. They have made the ADA sit back and take notice. A pitty they didn't know about it earlier.

Next time the ADA might think twice before they push for tighter gun control.
