    From all accounts yes... brought in to eradicate wild dogs, they were cunning and stayed way off and he was having trouble hitting them with conventional rifles and calibers so this rifle was issued and the mob was destroyed in 2 Weeks and the rifle sat ever since.

    Sounds like the premise under which Tom Selleck was drawn to Australia in the movie "Quigley Down Under", just with a Sharps instead of a Sako. "I said I never had much use for a handgun. I didn't say I didn't know how to use one."

    Yeah not to sure about Toms commission here in Aus but Im pretty sure he wasn't anywhere near a feral dog... In saying that...I didn't know the other actors or the crew personally though?
    As for the 264 HB it reminds me of Tom a bit, "One of a Kind"......maybe? I do know his Leading lady knocked a few Dingos with a handgun he provided...
