    The Dummies Guide On How To Pattern A Shotgun

    How do I pattern my new shotgun to determine where it is shooting?


    I get asked this question at least twice a week so I thought I would share the answer here.

    The Base Rifle

    This rifle started life as a Remington 700 Tactical with 16.5 inch barrel chambered in .308 WIN(Factory id 8553.

    From the factory these rifles ship with a Hogue synthetic overmoulded stock in a colour called "ghillie green" which is actually more of a grey colour. This stock itself is actually surprisingly good in some ways, for example it is pillar bedded. However it is fairly flimsy in the fore-end area and

    Short Rifle Project Conclusion

    By S12A





    Introduction.

    I recently put together a short barrelled (16.5") Remington 700, which has been the subject of an article on this website previously. This rifle was intended to be a light and handy rifle to cover most situations i would find myself participating in. The intention was never to build a dedicated long range rifle but the results have been suprising.

    Since the original project

I had an open rifle that was made up from an old school shilen bench rifle. I had this chambered in 308 and it booted like a cow. It was to light in weight, but did it shoot! I managed the first 10 shot possible at 300 yards in Australia using the 10 ring f open targets. This was before electronic targets, so the target was pulled between shots.

    Victoria Forum Hunt and Camping Trip Report

    By Diary of an average hunter

    After much deliberation, the Shooting Australia forum meet held over the weekend was a great success and a terrific time was had by all. The weekend would not have been such a success without the exceptional help by those involved. I think I speak on behalf of all the members involved when I say that we ate like kings and were in want of nothing. The festivities began on Friday evening with the majority of members opting for the 2 day weekend. After a quick
