April 2022 - Australian Shooter

This month we’ve laid our hands on Schultz & Larsen’s Hunter Traveller Composite switch-barrel rifle featuring cut-rifled barrels which, as the name implies, is the oldest method for rifling barrels now using state-of-the-art machinery to ensure utmost precision. Our reviewer tested the gun with two barrels, both of which shot a variety of ammunition with superb accuracy. Also under review this issue is the new Canik Rival pistol, Javelin bipods and accessories, the Steiner Predator 4 riflescope and an interesting rangefinder-scope combo from Sig Sauer. Elsewhere, Rod Pascoe takes an in-depth look at the many reasons for that irritating ammunition failure, John Hill explains how general rifle maintenance is well within the capabilities of almost every shooter and David Hughes wraps up his three-part series on the philosophy of hunting and views of its detractors.
