July 2019 - Australian Shooter

Rifles take centre stage in our July edition with Con Kapralos running the rule over both the Sako Finlight II and Kimber’s Subalpine mountain rifle in .300 WSM. Daniel O’Dea travels back in time to the days of his youth with a look at the latest Stoeger air rifles – the RX5 and RX20 Sport – and we turn the spotlight on Queensland’s Ipswich & District Rifle Club who will stage a two-day shooting festival this month to celebrate their 160th anniversary. Our cover picture features Chris Redlich who has taken to the field with the outstanding Swarovski ATS 65 spotting scope and, still on optics, Thomas Tabor has assessed the latest pocket-sized binoculars from Steiner Optik. We also take a look at three new Federal Premium hunting cartridges and check in with retiring Senator and keen hunter Nigel Scullion who tells us: “If I was a wild pig, I’d be starting to get nervous!”
