    Broke stock on 375 H&H Mag. so acquired a TRG 42 in 300 Win Mag, Leupold 3 - 19 VRX 6. Will be interesting carrying it on 4 Wheeler.

    Re: Whos From Australia Victoria? and do LR sambar hunting

    Just saw this thread!
    I spend a lot of time in NE Vic, have numerous properties to hunt on, mostly dairy farms with large plots of land. The ranges I hunt from are between 500m to 800m in very sreep country, which sometimes causes me to pass on certain animals due to the terrain they're in.
    I have 2 rifles I use for this, neither are what a traditional long range outfit would intail, even though I do have a long range rifle built around a Rem Sendero in 300WinMag, It's just too heavy to carry in this terrain. I use a Kimber 8400 in 300WinMag with a 26" barrel, Leupy 3.5-10x40 VX-III, it's quite capable to 1000m, although getting a steady rest in that type of terrain isn't that easy. My other rifle is a Win Model 70 S/S with 26" barrel in 338WinMag, same scope as above, it's capable to 800m, but I don't shoot past 600m with this outfit.

    Cheers.

    Yep, West of Horsham. Dont shoot long range just pop fox and cats.
    Browning X Bolt 243 with VX-L 6.5-20 x56 & Browning T Bolt HMR17 with VX-L 3.5-10 x50. Love the 17 on cats and real good on fox to about 100 - 120 m.
    Cheers Butch.
