I live in WA that is western Australia. That's the big chunk of Oz apx the size of Europe and UK and bit more only with out all the people.
My Hornet is a SAKO m68 or 78 forget I bought it second hand a long time back in loved and cared for condition that well up on owned and back veranda condition and that is well up on back of ute condition. It is a beautiful bit of kit has a Weaver 3.5--10 x 50 scope and one of Americas greatest inventions the harris bi-pod. That is brilliant if your are in the bush and need to put the rifle down.
oh and its Sako typical accurate.
that's about it from me
