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
338 Lapua Magnum
and some pistol cartridge that apparently punches through Kevlar helmets.
Not sure on .338 Edge etc yet.
