July 2014 - Australian Shooter

This month marks 100 years since the start of WWI and in remembrance, Royce Wilson takes a look at the service rifles used by each of the countries involved in the war. Paul Miller reviews the Akkar 3 triple-barrelled 12-gauge shotgun and Bruce Wellington tests the Henry H001 rimfire lever-action rifle. Neal Finch from The University of Queensland shares some results from the 2012 Australian Hunter Survey, and Tim Blackwell tells us why he’ll always remember taking his first sambar stag. Enrico Hoover from New Zealand introduces us to a new long-range rimfire shooting competition that’s proving popular with new and experienced shooters alike, and we meet the shooting team who will be representing Australia later this month at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
