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.
