September 2018 - Australian Shooter

As we leave winter behind and step into spring, there is much to keep you busy in the September edition of Australian Shooter. Our firearms reviews kick off with Con Kapralos testing the Browning X-Bolt Hell’s Canyon Long-Range in 6.5 Creedmoor which he rates ‘up there with the best of them’. Still on firearms and John Gillis remembers fondly the Model 55 Winchester .22 while Neil Wheatley find the Streamline air rifle an excellent PCP option for the rabbit hunter. Sam Talbot our Communications Officer continues his quest to shoot multiple SSAA disciplines and this month turns his attention to Field Shotgun and what it takes to be competitive. This edition features a trail camera special with Steve Bain comparing the low-glow and no-glow options while Derek Nugent explains the best way to get the most out of your camera. Among the latest products under review are muzzle brakes and the new powders from ADI, while DVD presenter Shaun Whale features on our cover as he goes in search of his first trophy boar. It’s all happening in September’s Australian Shooter.
