March 2018 - Australian Shooter

As autumn arrives, the March edition of Australian Shooter  contains a 14-page duck season special, focusing on the gear, guns, ammo and etiquette required for this popular discipline. Read John McDougall’s feature on everything you need to know for a successful duck shooting season.

Also in this edition, Ian Ferrier discusses a right-handed rifle for a left-handed shooter, and senior correspondent John Dunn attends a weekend knife-making course at the Tharwa Valley Forge near Canberra.

On a more competitive note, SSAA President Geoff Jones looks ahead to this month’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast and invites members to back the online petition to have shooting reinstated to the 2022 Games in Birmingham.

Put through their paces by our expert reviewers this month are the new Sako 85 Carbon Wolf rifle, which is already creating a buzz, and the Savage B22 FVSS, an ideal starting rifle for recreational hunters.
