Issue 5 – May 2010 - The Australian Junior Shooter

The names given to particular cartridges can often be a source of bafflement to junior shooters. However, as Tim Blackwell explains, there is logic to the creation and title of this quirky element of shooting. On a similar theme, Barry Wilmot opens the doors on the art of reloading, which can be a rewarding exercise both in terms of enjoyment and money-saving. Out on the range, Rachael Andrews discusses the role of spotters and how they can provide invaluable assistance for medal-chasing target shooters. Cheri Tabor takes us on an enthralling deer hunt in Volcanic Mount St Helens in North America, while how to cook game from such a trek is detailed in a recipe for venison chilli con carne.
