a few things

THING 1. Two elections loom this year, both NSW and Federal and in one case, the choices offered could not be more stark. Federally, it is very confusing, with the two major parties offering little for the working stiff in rural or urban Australia. In the Senate, a vote for an independent needs to be very carefully considered, due to where their preferences will end up, but in the House of Reps', it may be wise to vote out sitting members, unless they specifically look after outdoor pursuits and the bush. In NSW, however, the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party (SFF) are standing 23 Lower House contenders and if they are anything like the quality and effectiveness of SFF Member for Orange, Phil Donato, then your vote is safe with them.…

chasing red deer

IF YOU asked me what my favourite deer was to hunt, the red deer, without a doubt always springs to mind first. The mountain hunting is where I find the greatest adventure. However, a red deer in full rut will stand the hairs on any hunter’s neck. I have gained a tremendous amount of hunting experience chasing red deer. My scouting season starts early and I also hunt well past the rut looking for the cagey old stags that may only make a few mistakes each year. There is not a year that goes by, where I feel like I have them completely worked out, more often than not it’s the least expected locations and days where I find what I’m looking for. It usually takes me weeks to even find a…

letter of the month

.240 Weatherby Versus 6mm-06 Q I’ve been thinking about getting a hot 6mm for the last couple of years. My mate had .243 WSSM up for sale and I was interested until I shot it and found it gave feeding and extraction problems. Recently I’d just about decided to rebarrel my old .270 Model 70 to 6mm-06, and then I read what you’d written about the .240 Weatherby Magnum in a back issue. Now I’m undecided which is the best way to go. What is your opinion on these two hot 6mms? – Kenneth Hayes A I like the .240 Weatherby and prefer it over the wildcat 6mm-06, but if you are economy minded, 6mm-06 brass would be cheaper; all you need to do is run .25-06 cases through a 6mm-06 full-length die.…

black fox down

SHOOTING has always been a big part of growing up on the family farm north of Adelaide, for brother’s Russell (26) and Lewis (24). From a young age they would go out with their father Bevan but would often fall asleep in the ute, only when the gun went off would they wake to find they had missed out on the hunt. As the years went on it finally became their turn to shoot and spotlight. It all started when Russell’s mate Marty mentioned seeing a black fox a couple of years ago but of course at the time they all thought he was dreaming. However it wasn’t too long after this that Bevan mentioned he’d seen the black fox and then sure enough, Russell happened to see it for himself…

the lynx td 15 straight-pull variation

THE Lynx 94 straight-pull rifle is without a doubt the most unique and unusual hunting rifle I've ever come across. It is a straight-pull takedown without the interchangeable barrel option, hence it has little in common with either the Blaser or the Merkel RX Helix. Well made and innovative, the Lynx’s action is totally different, operating straight back it features a rear locking Crossbolt system instead of a rotating bolt head which makes cycling even faster. The bolt is fully contained within the receiver, so the rifle cannot be modified from righthand to left. In recent years as competition between various bolt-action designs increased, there has been unending flurry of activity not only toward developing stronger, safer and more accurate mechanisms but also toward rifles that are simpler and less costly…

a bit of lynx history

The Lynx straight-pull rifle was created by Mr. Taksi Laaksonen, a master gunsmith with a lifelong passion for hunting and gun technology. He studied weapons technology at the Finnish Military School of Weapons during 1954-55, but his professional career began when he became employed as a worker at the Tampereen Asepaja Oy (Tampere Weapons Factory Ltd) where he rapidly progressed to become a gunsmith in 1964. After the death of the owner of the factory he became a partner and was appointed Director of Technology in 1968. The first production rifle designed by Mr. Laaksonen was a .222 Rem. calibre pump-action rifle for running target shooting, which was followed by his first straight-pull rifle, the .22 calibre Wild Boar. In 1975, the world famous Lakelander TAP-375 appeared and a year later…
