@JohnCZ .
Welcome mate ,where in OZ do you hail from. I'm on the central coast of nsw between Sydney and Newcastle. There's a whole bunch of Aussies on here. Best forum around, what calibers do you reload for and what do y ou hunt.
Looking forward to hearing more from you.

@JohnCZ
The new England area is great I've got a few good feeds of fallow from the G.I. area.

Heading down to guyra next week although a bit hot, border finally open so the old fella (75) can come for a weekend walk in the paddock. I have a new Mauser M12 Expert in 30-06 with an Aimpoint to chase some pigs hopefully.

Hunted the adavale area but the gov't had just done an areal cull so a complete waste of time.. I like a plan the calibers you have except the 243. To me it's to big for small and to little for medium. Love the 25/06 and the 35 Whelen.
You also have a great gun shop up there in gold coast shooters supplies.

Nah that would be Dad, figure I will drop into Ebor on the way down, he started me hunting when I was six there so I thought it'd be good just me and him for a couple of days.
The 243 is a little ZKK601 that I have just picked up, not sure what I will do for it yet, use to load for the wife's Model Seven in 243 mostly.

Gold Coast Shooters is owned by a friend of mine, good shop for finding things that aren't always available. I have been looking at the odd 9.3x62 hmmm and there is a whole different thought...
