    Feral Donkeys ln Australia

    Hi all, I have to agree with Aussie Steve, Donkey is good eating if you get the young mares, as with all “game” meats, the young females are the best to eat(except bloody emu, stringy crap at the best). I often go shooting on a few properties to cull Roos, Brumby’s, pigs, camels and the odd...

    The big 7mm’s

    The big 7mm’s

    Hi Jimbires, the information you sent me is the very stuff I have been looking for, living in Australia, it is a bit more difficult to find the right businesses in the USA, l don’t think you have any idea how much you have helped me, if I can help you with anything, (well almost) just yell out...

    The big 7mm’s

    Hi Jimbires, thank you for the information, also where did you get your die’s from? I like the fact that they are not common and over here, no one has even heard of them, 300 win mag brass is very readily available (we are lucky to not have the shortages that are plaguing the USA). I have a...

    Case prep center

    I have the Frankfort Arsenal Platinum Case prep centre, in my view, it’s the best value for money centre as it measures from the shoulder and has a mic adjustment and comes complete for every caliber from 17 to almost 50. Easy to set up and use but it is American power setup, l am in Australia...
