    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

    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.:D

    Neither of you would hardly notice the difference.:)

    After almost 39 years of married bliss...compromise is the key. While I like Roy's approach my misses knows just enough about this stuff to say

    "375 anything my arse. If I'm getting a smaller wedding then your getting a 22.:D
