I managed to shoot 6 fallow this time. All in very good condition. A bit of snow around and very cold and windy.

Guys i was cleaning the shed on the farm today and came across these really weird ammo, did abit of research tonight https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/.22_BB,
My question @45/70 @grumpyone or anyone else will these fire through a 22lr? They are not very powerful round (my air rifle is harder hitting) but i think it will be alot of fun to shoot them😃

Should be fine, just make sure you clean the chamber before shooting longs again. The carbon can cause the longer brass to get stuck.

I've tried those in the past,[rats] but shot is more effective,the ones with a ball are BB Caps and the pointed projectiles are CB Caps,conical ball,no powder load just the priming compound drives them with a trajectory like a brick.I haven't measured any over a chronograph,but I dare to say 300 - 350 F/S would be max velocity.After you are done always push a patch through the bore to make sure it is clear.I just looked up Wiki,says 700f/s,that in my opinion is verrry optomistic,but I was wrong once before 🤣

Well it was bloody cold on the weekend.
Minus 12 on the dash of the hilux.
I shot 2 deer friday arvo. Didnt do any morning hunts as I figured why get frozen when I already have enough vennison for the weekend.
Sat arvo hunt we saw quite a few deer in the bush high up, the teatree and wattle was quite thick so could only catch glimpses as they ran off.
The guys went spotlighting but didnt see any deer either of the two nights.

Just read about an NZ Tahr hunt. It was cold in their camp. They had to pour hot water in their boots to defrost them, and warm the rifle actions up over the stove to be able to open them.

Good to see you aren't afflicted by the 'murrican hit 'em in the boiler room meat wasting trend.I guess they can only hit the biggest bit.

I have had an order in for 900 rounds of osa blitzking for the 223. It has been about 5 months so I called up and asked what was happening with the order. Was told all orders are cancelled as there wont be any more comingin. I might have to go the game king instead.
