April 2015 - Australian Shooter

The SSAA and the Shooting Industry Foundation of Australia (SIFA) meet with politicians in Canberra to discuss and promote the shooting sports, and the SSAA and New Zealand’s Council of Licensed Firearms Owners (COLFO) sign a Memorandum of Understanding to protect firearm owners in the Pacific. Our reviewers field-test the Savage Mark II BRJ .22LR and CZ 557 Sporter .30-06 Springfield rifles, the Optisan Viper 8-32×60 scope, GlowShot reactive targets and the Max-Clean Maintenance Range Box. Bob Whinnen reflects on the SSAA National Quail Research Project and the current state of quail hunting in South Australia. Ron Fredericks analyses what pinpoint shooting accuracy means, Royce Wilson takes a look at Pattern 1914 and M1917 Enfield rifles, and SSAA clubs around the country prepare for Anzac Day events.
