FC02537E-F316-4A0E-B00B-A5D62632A359.jpegMyself and a couple of mates had a wonderful Zen Breathing session.
It’s been a bit since I’ve been able to get to the range.

Today, I was able to try out a new toy I’ve been waiting 13 months for: a Warwick WFLA1 in .223.
For all you international readers, it should be noted that this is a straight-pull bolt action rifle, designed and made locally here in Australia.

We were planning on attending the main SSAA complex at Belmont, but new noise abatement measures preclude any centre fire rifle barrel less than 20 inches. Unfortunately, I happen to possess a 16in barrel….

So we went round to the 25m zero range in the QRA complex. And much zen meditation was had.
I was able to get a rough zero at 25m, but need to stretch her legs out to confirm and tidy it up.

She’ll do. I’m pretty happy with this as a range rifle/range toy.

I posted about this on Farcebook.
Thought to copy across to here for prosperity.

More information on my Warwick WFA1-L for anyone interested.
It’s Australian designed and made, a modern looking straight-pull manually operated (Category B in our legislative environment) sporting rifle.

It uses a modified AR-18 mechanism that can’t allow easy conversion to self-loading (Category D) configuration.

I had another Zen breathing session this week. This time, zeroing my 12gauge:
A Savage 212 bolt action.
Target at 25m with Winchester solid slugs.
Tried 00Buck too, but that haloed around my target due to the rifled barrel, as I was expecting.
