    Welcome to the site pecar. They are not a bad bunch of guys on the site and they will probably forgive you for coming from New Zealand.

    What do you call metric calibres then mate? Unfortunately there are too many blind guys on here who think the only calibres that can shoot originated in the states.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Nice selection there, covers most things.

    Thanks 8x57,But with the metrics most hunters/ shooters are not interested or wont to know,we might be a dying breed.
