I had a call from James at the Sportsman's Gun Centre this morning to tell me that my Steyr Mannlicher fullstock in 7mm-08 has finally been delivered from Austria, a month or so late which means I missed the chance to shoot my first deer with it, but better late than never, and there will be other occasions. I should be able to pick it up from Ray Ward's on Saturday. Unfortunately they weren't able to send a box of Federal Fusion along with it as the carrier won't take ammunition, and he said they'd have to send it separately at a cost of about £40 for a single £32 box, which is daft. Never mind, I have four factory loads to try, one of them will be fine.
Now I still have to wait all the way to Saturday!
