February 2014 - Australian Shooter

Don Caswell takes to the field with the Savage Model 11 FCNS in .223 Remington in search of feral pigs and goats, while John McDougall reviews the elegant Fabarm Classis 12 side-by-side 12-gauge shotgun. John Broxburn takes a short journey through the long history of gunpowder, Con Kapralos tests a new range of Sako centrefire ammunition, and several Australian ammo distributors discuss how US politics has been affecting ammo and powder availability in our country. The SSAA also launches Ecology and Management of Quail in Australia, the culmination of years of research and collaboration by Australian wildlife biologist Dr Graham Hall about Australia’s three quail species.
