    Gidday my name is Craig i live in Waimate New Zealand which is about 2.5 hours drive south of Christchurch. I up graded from airrifles rangeing from .20 -.45 at christmas time to a howa .308 with a axiom stock versa pod bipod and have just added a nikon buck master 6-18-40. I have shot several .4 in 3 shot groups and have now started hand loading using 168g amax and reloader 15 powder. My longest shot on a animal so far is 350 yards on a wild sheep
