How the hell did use get a .338

Just curios how many of u got a .338? I live on the west coast of australia and I'd like to know how use managed to get the government to allow use to get a .338? My friend had trouble getting a 308 on a farm with a vast amount of acres exceeding 20,000 he said he was using it for goats and pigs at a long distance, because it has lathe harvest areas and you need to down the animal humanily as possible and you can't drive the 4wd thru the crops to get close enough he was only allowed a 243. I'm looking at getting a 300 win mag but now I'm worried the bloody government won't allow me to have it. Has anyone ever had this problem? I'm thinking if they reject my application for a 300 win mag I should get a lawyer involved may cost abit of money but i think it would be worth a try.

Any advice would be great I already own 3 firearms and there's talks of restricting the amount of guns one person can own or so the rumors go.

Yeah i heard WA has Strong gun laws.....i'm heading over that way in October and was thinking of taking a rifle but was told by another mate who travelled there a couple of years ago that it's a pain in the ass......In NSW its No problem to get a .338 or even bigger....

Ouch! sorry to hear about your troubles.

Living here in the US, we do not have the troubles you're having. I have a safe full of guns here ranging from 22lr to 300RUM in rifle and 9mm to 44mag in pistols and the government doesn't know about any of them.

Hopefully another Aussie will chime in with something more helpful.

Move to the U.S.??

Well you sir can kiss my hairy man plums then burn in hell haha joking mate all I want is a 300 win mag or a .270 I'm not asking for a belt fed mini gun mounted to my Toyota landcruiser or a rocket launcher. Idealy I want a 30-30 a 300 win mag a .270 and another shotgun, Iv got a leaver action shotgun but a double barrel 30 inch barrel. The shotgun and 30-30 is " easy enough " but the other two I might aswell as for weapons grade plutonium. Old Martin Bryant Sure f#%ked it for us hope he burns in hell. God rest the poor victims.

G'Day Fella's,

Aussie Hunter, I just handed over the money!

Not sure which .338 you are referring to but I have the following;
.338-06 (Brno ZKK600)
.338Win Mag (Rem 700 BDL)
.340 Weatherby (Mk V )
.338Lapua Mag (Rem 700 MLR)

If you haven't worked it out by now, yes, I like my .338's!
Would really like to still have my .338 WM BAR but some slimy political animal took it off me! FJWH!!!

Doh!
Homer

With all my bitching about the laws in my state (New York) it's good to be reminded from time to time of how it is for others in the world. I spent some time with your Commandos back in 08. That was the first time I learned about what had happned in your country. I hope you get the rifle you want man I realy do. Cant you just go buy it where the other guys live at and bring it back to where you live?


What about NZ, its closer to home, nothing that will kill you whan it stings or bites and they have a lot of game, just saying. I served with some of them they were stand up guys and girls.
