We’re busier than ever in the pages of October’s issue of Australian Shooter with four of the latest firearms under review. John McDougall features on our cover as he gets to grips with the new Webley & Scott Series 1000 shotgun, a genuine slice of Italian flair. Senior correspondent John Dunn runs the rule on the CZ 455 Stainless Synthetic and realises that “when you’re on a good thing, stick to it”. The Ruger American Ranch rifle is placed under the microscope by Con Kapralos and proves to be a fine all-round utility option, while Daniel O’Dea gives us the lowdown on the latest high-power offering from GC Precision Developments. Rounding out our firearms section, Communications Officer Sam Talbot continues his mission to shoot the SSAA disciplines, and this month turns his attention to Handgun Metallic Silhouette. Products under review this month include Hawke Optics’ latest laser range finder, we turn the spotlight on Grizzly muzzle brakes, run the numbers on Buffalo River’s .243 Winchester hunting ammunition and step out in the new Kosci boots by Spika. With all our regular columns, a bumper letters section and prizes to be won, there’s something for everyone in this month’s Australian Shooter.
