    Hello All,

    Prompted to join as I'm looking for load data, anything on anything, for Nobel No 78 Shotgun Powder.

    I reload for 12g, .410 bore, .45ACP, .38sp, .357Mag Pistol & Rifle, .303 British, 30-30 Winchester and 7.6239mm hunting rounds

    I hunt deer, pig, goat, rabbit, possum, wallaby when opportunity arises. I'm a keen flyfisherman and a practicing artist mostly in painting. I live in Auckland New Zealand with a holiday home in Taranaki and am doing BFA Honours next year at Elam School of Fine Arts. 6 grandkids and one on the way. I ride rather large motorcycles on rather small roads. Spent 5 years working in USA, Florida and Seattle.

    Thks for having me.

    kind regards

    Welcome Jhon,

    I lived in Auckland in the eighties (Parnell & Mount Eden) before marrying one of your lot & moving back to Scotland. I'm a photographer specialising in art, producing books on artists, art collections & exhibitions. Seem to remember considering doing a part-time course at Elam but never got around to it. I used to ride very big bikes too on surprisingly good roads when I was in NZ. Starting to plan a trip for July/August 2018, mainly South Island based.

    As long as they keep off politics they're alright on SD & can be very helpful,

    A few changes since the eighties perhaps. We live in Grey Lynn so not far from your old haunts. If youre in Auckland 2018 feel free to look us up.... and I'm too old for politics :-)

    Welcome Jhon. Any load data you have on hunting loads for the 7.62x39 would be much appreciated!
