“Frontier – the Battle for the North Island”
Peter Maxwell’s controversial book about the New Zealand War campaigns of the 1860s tells a story few New Zealanders really understand, and has now been reprinted a third time. “Frontier” threads these complex events into their direct chronological sequence, traces the campaigns on the ground, and unlike the politically correct accounts approved off by the academics, treats both Maori and European fighting men with respect.
The latest 384 page revised edition is on sale now, and contains additional maps and illustrations not found in the two earlier editions.

Swarovski 10x42 SLC HD –

Optics Editor Don MacDonald field tests a new pair of binos from the Austrian maestros... Over the past few years I’ve been lucky enough to review and field test top of the line Swarovski gear. This includes the Z6 riflescope and the fantastic EL range of binoculars. These items are pretty much the best of the best in terms of hunting optics, ... read more

Blaser R8: Revisited

Three magnums, three barrels, 'one gun'... NZG&H first reviewed the Blaser R8 Professional Tracker back in issue #135. It proved to be a fine rifle with great balance and an almost shotgun type feel to it when bringing up to the shoulder. For those familiar with the Blaser family of firearms, feel free to jump ahead a paragraph. For those... read more

Swarovski ATX 25-60x85 in sika country

Nik, Scotty & Phill field-test a high quality spotting scope from a world-class manufacturer... It was on one of our roar hunts into a new area last year that we saw some potential for testing a spotting scope. The wide tussock valleys, open tops and expansive clay pan faces looked ideal for some serious glassing. During our 2013 trip we ... read more

Remington’s Model 700 Mountain Rifle

A Remington 700 is a rifle I know I should probably own. They are dependable, have proven reliability, and increasingly important for today’s trends, are easily adjustable should you want to re-barrel, re-chamber, re-trigger, re-stock or generally accurise. Why don’t I own one? I don’t really know, I just never have. I do have to admit though... read more

Windham AR15 Carbine –

Wellington Service Rifle shooter Gerry Veugelaers checks out the latest model... Windham is not a name that grabs the average shooter’s attention first hand. In fact, it sounds more like a Subway sandwich than an AR15, but once you know that the Windham factory once made Bushmaster firearms, I trust you will take a lot more notice. Bushmast... read more

Shooting ADI’s military .223 brass –

Matthew Cameron does some testing – A question that occurs with regularity on internet forums is whether 5.56x45 NATO ammunition (the military version of the .223) can be fired in sporting .223 chambers and vice versa. (Ed: see the “Ask the Experts” column in our last issue, #138). Both rounds became popular because of cheap surplus mil... read more
