SATURDAYS SKL 20 KIPPLAUF | Come on, hit and hit ... as the Tuscan friends say, meaning ruthlessness in something that must materialize, and here is the day of hunting where the SKL 20 kipplauf by Sabatti and the Sight Mark optics will be put to the test. The equipment has already given excellent results in the various shooting ranges we attended by probing the capabilities of the weapon and optics binomial with two original cartridges, the RWS with 8,2 g (127 g) KS bullet and with 9,1 g DK bullet. (140 gr) plus a certain number of refills specially set up by my friend Carlo.
The fixed day is Thursday 14 October so, taking a cue from an invitation to the shooting range of Moiola (CN) for Tuesday 12 with a completely different purpose, we decide to bring Sabatti with us once again: the last hits were the three of the excellent grouping made by Carlo (55 mm to 300) in Pian Neirèt (TO) obtained with the adjustment of the graduated turret of the Sight Mark proved, once again, to be totally reliable.
Given the abundance of these trees in the plain, the roof terrace called the oaks welcomes us: with the rangefinder we recheck the distances, both the greater and the smaller ones, in the escarpment next to the location as usual. Roby takes care of the images and, through the lens, there are no limitations: an interesting novelty has recently appeared in the management of the company with the introduction of excellent trophies for mouflon, fallow deer and red deer.
We will talk about it shortly, assuming that for us, of course, these garments are to be admired ... Even so it is always a fantastic show: in particular a group of mouflons with different males, females, kid and thin ones stop for several minutes a few tens of meters, to clean, filling the lenses of the binoculars and those of the camera. Two fallow deer that can be taken pass at a trot and always out of sight with the vegetation: the bushes with branches of a certain consistency advise against any shot as a risk.
