the twenty-two rocks

NICK Harvey recently tested the new Ruger Precision Rimfire Rifle and in the process he decided to stretch the humble cartridge out to 200 yards and ran its ballistics to 300 yards in the attached table. On a calm day he shot 5-shot groups of under 2 ½ inches at 200 yards and was thoroughly impressed at the new-found plinking and target potential of the humble platform, using specific ammunition. In a related experience, I tested some new .22LR ammunition from Winchester Australia, Browning Performance Rimfire, which displayed similar long range potential to that of Nick with CCI Velocitor. Both quote a 40gn hollow-point bullet leaving the muzzle at 1435fps, but the Browning batch I tested chronographed an average 1485fps (!) for ten shots from my Brno Model 2. With a slightly…

arnhem land bulls

LIKE most keen Australian hunters I’ve always wanted to hunt the water buffalo of the Northern Territory. Partly because they are our largest game animal and the closest thing to dangerous game that we have here in Australia. And partly because of the country they call home. The remote savannahs and floodplains of the tropical north are some of the wildest places in Australia. In September 2016 the dream finally came to fruition, and with three good mates I headed north to Arnhem Land in search of buffalo. Australia is a big country, and it was a three day drive for us from the east coast to the buffalo country. Not surprisingly it turned into about 70 hours of non-stop buffalo talk. Dan, who had organised the hunt, had hunted them…

.22 magnum accuracy

Q I would like some information about the velocity and accuracy of the .22 Magnum. I wonder if any .22 Magnum ammo could be considered match-grade? I have a CZ ZKM 455 Varmint Evolution in .22 Magnum which will average around one-half inch at 100 yards for five shots with Winchester ammo. It groups into .75 inch with the 40gn JHP and .75 with both the 34gn JHP and 40gn FMJ. While no company offers a .22 WMR match-grade load, Winchester ammo is capable of excellent accuracy in my good CZ. What loads do you recommend for rabbits and foxes and larger animals? – Ray Jones A My beautiful CZ 452-2E ZKM American topped with a Zeiss Diatal-C 6x scope is also very accurate and can be depended upon to group five…

Letters containing questions for answering by Nick Harvey must be accompanied by a stamped self-addressed envelope. Mail your letters to: The Technical Editor, 3 Reef Street, Hill End, NSW 2850. The .270 Taipan Strikes Again Q I'd like your opinion on a cartridge that I was shown which is very unusual. I own an old .303-270 which was given me by my father and I am familiar with its history and reloading data. But recently when I visited a friend in Jindabyne he told me about his fathers .270 wildcat on a .303 case. Later his father showed me the rifle and cartridge and to my surprise I found it was not a regular .303-270 but one which had had a blown out case. He said it was a .270 Taipan. Apparently,…

field butchery made easy

FINDING a deer and executing a successful kill often requires a lot of time and effort. To make the most of this investment, a confident approach to the meat-recovery process is very helpful. For the average hunter who only bags a few deer per year, it can take quite a while to develop a standard routine for field butchery. There are many little tricks that only come from experience, so being able to observe guys who do it all the time is invaluable. I learnt my craft by watching the techniques of hunters who field-dress scores of deer each year. Hence, the methods explained here are eminently practical and efficient. Most of the good venison comes from the aft end of the animal. The focus of this article is therefore the…
