    From smallest to largest
    All but 2 are my reloads,
    On display in my CD-Video case.

    That should raise a few eyebrows, when we have visitors

    G'day Gumpy
    Been reasonable, Have retired, and I am finding enough time in the day to "play"
    We have brought a Caravan, and have been "Corrugation Proofing" it, and running it in, or shoule I say doing very small weekender's to a local Camping Park, to see what else we need to add to it, before we head out and do some of the "Big Trips", we have planned.

    Too hot here to hunt, (snake factor) and when it's not too hot, the wind is blowing it's guts out, so I cannot get out to try my experimental 270 rounds. That bloody rifle hasn't been the same in the last 12 months, but I will solve it, that much I guarantee.

    All reasonably good over here


    and at your end. ????

    I actually can't wait for it to cool down, so I can go back up to the High Country, and hunt again. I can go now, but usually wait till the end of March, to avoid the heat, and Tiger Snakes

    In short, yes other are mean little mothers

    http://museumvictoria.com.au/discov...nakes-found-in-victoria/mainland-tiger-snake/

    Spending 5 years on King Island, in the middle of Bass Straight, I learnt about another type of Tiger Snake, that inhabit the Island, are very dark in colour, doe to them eating "mutton birds(short tale shearwater birds), and have killed many of them, but they are fairly dosile

    In Victoria, they are very aggressive, especially towards the end of Summer, and into Autumn (Fall).. I am extremely cautious in swampy areas, around Creeks, and fallen trees, and the Bush, in general.

    That's where I hunt, and most of the high country is like what I described.

    I would definitely leave them alone!! One in a sleeping bag would make a short hunt.

    That's why we have SWAG's

    You lot over there call them a Bedroll.
    In Oz they have developed into a snake proof, bugproof, and usually waterproof Swag, and they are incredibly popular here.
    There is a myriad of different styles, quality, and prices to suit the avid hunter, traveler, and hiker/bushwalker
    I have 2, one 15 years old, but it's letting in water, ( I have re-treated it with "Snowseal")
    I brought a new one, and it will get a workout in the High Country, real soon.

    Cheers
    Bucky
