October 2014 - Australian Shooter

Media Officer Kate Fantinel takes a look at Landline’s television coverage of the SSAA Farmer Assist program and the on-the-ground efforts by one Farmer Assist member in managing wild dogs on a Queensland cattle farm. James Cheung examines the trend in tactical firearms and what makes a firearm ‘tactical’, while Leon Wright shares his success in hunting teal with the 20-gauge and Lionel Swift talks about the importance of location in securing deer. We review the Nosler Model 48 Patriot in .270 Winchester, the Montana American Standard in .30-06 Springfield, the Leupold VX-6 3-18×44 Custom Dial System scope and the Lightforce PRED3x rifle-mounted light, and we announce the first four recipients of the SSAA National Academic Bursary program.
