I got my rifle today, Brad and his son Mitch at pro Hunt in Lismore did a great job of mounting the Vortex 4-12 on it and managed to scrounge up some Lee dies as well. Got some Winchester 80gn factory to shoot tomorrow at the range, then the handloading will begin. Target species will be Fallow and maybe some goats. If a dog gets in the way it will be in bother too.
Cheers boys,

I would mate, but I'm technically challenged. If someone wants to PM their email address I can send them then they can be posted??? Perhaps.

Thanks for that Tim, I'm a confirmed 270 operator too. Love that cartridge. Mines a Montana ASR, I was going to get another mod 70 Sporter but couldn't find one so went to a Montana. I just saw that Featherweight and knew it had to go to a good home.

I saw it at QGE mate, but when I spoke my LGS about having it transferred to them they did a deal with QGE and I ended up saving myself about $50. Apparently my blokes do a lot of business with QGE. Good store too by the way. One benefit of living in the big smoke.

Nice pattern on the stock, much better looking than plain boring chequering.
