    Hi Fellas,

    Found this site looking for hunting forums and I really like the informative advise from the many forum members. I mainly use a Winchester 300 WSM that I hunt wild dogs/dingoes and the occasional deer with, I also like to shoot sporting clays and hunt ducks and quail.
    I just like to lurk on this site as just about every topic and question is raised and answered that I can get all the information I need!
    Keep up the good work.

    Cheers
    dogger

    Welcome Aboard Dogger,

    There is a vast amount of experience and knowledge that will blow your mind - just great!

    Enjoy and tell your mates!lightbulb

    (As most aussies just don't get the long range hunting idea, they think long range is past 200 meters...)

    Cheers.

    It IS a falcon actually, 5.5-25x50 FFP mil-mil. So far its working great... for under $500AUD it blows anything else i could compare it to upto about $2.5k outa the water. I figured id try one and if it dies then i havnt lost much and ill put something nice and expensive on it :( . The choices are very limited in mil-mil FFP scopes... i dont work in MOA...

    The recoil is so mild on this gun tho, i dont think its really giving it much of a test...?

    Ok scratch my last comment, the scope lasted precisely 70 rounds on this gun, its now busted internally. Going back for warranty...
