Oh dear, not another 35 Whelan lover!" You know Bob only likes them because he's in Australia, is therefore upside down and all the blood has rushed to his head as result, right?

He does speak sense on 308W derrived cartridges though. Pretty much inferior and as for that 6mm-08 abomination...

If only they would have used a little common sense and made a 25-08 it would at least been useful.

In some ways that's right and it is all a matter of perspective but I will say that Europe and the USA are definitely the "Superior" hemisphere ;)
@Scrumbag
Superior to what, a Neanderthal. At least Australia has the OLDEST civilization in the world.

Hey now Neanderthals were pretty awesome hunters in there own right, anyone who faced down cave bears with a stone tipped spear gets my respect.

You've also got New Zealanders and Boers so not that civilised ;)
@Scrumbag
Scummy they are great people as well. Without New Zealand we wouldn't have the ANZACS and without the Boers we wouldn't be hunting south Africa.

Last one to leave New Zealand please turn the lights out. I know why NZ horses run so fast. They have seen what happens to the sheep by those gumboots wearers.

The way I heard it, only the dumbest New Zealanders move to Australia, thereby raising the average IQ of both countries...

;)
@Scrumbag
At least we can measure our intelligence, it may not be Einstein level but far higher than any Englishman. At least we don't drink hot beer.

Your grandfather was a good man a lot of the missionary people did good work. They had to after the brits invaded. The British invented the silliest game out, takes 5 days to get a result and played in summer when sane people are in air conditioning or pubs. Cricket. I know why the call it silly mid on/off because you have to be bloody stupid to stand there. Even when they say OVER they still keep playing. One day the ponies might beat Australia

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
