As winter gives way to spring we have all manner of entertaining articles in our September edition. The cover picture features regular contributor Mark van den Boogaart who continues our series of favourite rifle-cartridge-scope combinations and outlines a trio which turned into a real labour of love. Senior correspondent Rod Pascoe has unravelled the mysteries of calibre confusion and Thomas Tabor offers some expert advice on how to make yourself a better shotgun shooter. We profile Paralympic shooting legend Libby Kosmala who has been inducted into the South Australian Hall of Fame, while Leon Wright outlines the sheer joy a loyal hunting hound can bring. Items under review this month include the Howa 1500 Mini Action rifle, Fabarm’s XLR5 Velocity self-loading shotgun, Steiner Predator AF 10×42 binoculars and the nifty new AUPRO-90 borescope. Enjoy the magazine with a ‘spring’ in your step.
