As summer arrives and we approach year’s end, the pages of our December magazine are packed with all manner of good things. Senior correspondent John Dunn gets in early with the first review of the 783 Jackaroo rifle from Remington which he says will give a good account of itself wherever it’s deployed. Other firearms under review include the Sauer 100 Pantera rifle, Huglu Ventus shotgun and Big Horn Model 89 and, in ammunition, Chris Redlich finds the Nosler Accubond a long shot worth backing. This month’s mini-feature sees us go in search of the ideal rabbit gun, with Dave Burgess and Paul Barker spilling the good oil on the best way to hunt bunnies. Henri Lach checks in with the intriguing tale of one Queensland council’s method of tackling the feral cat problem – put a bounty on their heads, while assistant editor Dave Rose takes a trip back in time to recall the bizarre tale of a real-life lion hunt on the streets of suburban Adelaide. With our usual mix of letters and expert columns, December’s Shooter will keep you entertained until 2019. Merry Christmas from all at Australian Shooter.
