Hornady Precision Hunter and Match 6mm Creedmoor

Fri, 09/15/2017 - 17:25

Since its introduction in 2007, Hornady has continued to hit the sweet spot among long-range shooters with the 6.5 Creedmoor. A modification of the .30 TC and ultimately an offspring of the .308 Win., the 6.5 Creedmoor is effective because it capably seats bullets with high sectional density and ballistic coefficients, which are remarkably adept at producing flat trajectories and handling the wind. The 6.5 is also popular among competition shooters because it successfully houses these long, sleek bullets in a case that still fits in standard AR-10-style magazines and short-action bolt guns. As a result, the cartridge has been popular in competition and among game hunters.

Garment Bag + Rifle Case? This Vertx Bag Combines the Best of Both Worlds

Fri, 09/15/2017 - 15:45

I live across the street from an elementary school. Needless to say, transporting a rifle from my house to the car can be an especially sensitive process.

Travelling with a rifle makes discretion even more difficult. I don’t like leaving my firearms in a hotel parking lot, but lugging a gun case across the lobby isn’t ideal, either. The Second Amendment protects my right to carry a gun when I travel, but I’d rather not have to deal with the over-eager bell boy who decides to call the police.

The Perfect Kid’s Rifle: The Browning BL-22

Fri, 09/15/2017 - 14:11

I can still remember the days when I longed for my first rifle; the thought of a long shiny blued steel barrel and glossy walnut stock of my very own almost more than I could stand. Now I saw the same look in my little son Josiah’s eyes as he stood, hands shoved deep in his pockets, gazing with earnest shyness into my face as he answered my question. I had asked what he wanted more than anything for his upcoming ninth birthday. His answer? “A gun!”

Deep Six: Ruger’s Precision Rifle in 6mm Creedmoor Breaks the 1,000-Yard Barrier

Fri, 09/15/2017 - 13:32

Until recent years, owning a high-end chassis rifle was restricted to those with an excess cash problem, as many such rifles easily hit and surpass the $10,000 mark. For the most part, these rifles — used in both Precision Rifle Series (PRS) competition and among hardcore long-range enthusiasts of all stripes — have been produced mostly by small manufacturers and custom shops, hence the crushing price tags often associated with them.

The Best Rifle Scope Ever Built? NightForce ATACR 7-35X

Fri, 09/15/2017 - 08:04

At this year's SHOT Show, “Sniper Jesus” told me the new NightForce ATACR 7-35X was the best deal going in optics. I have anxiously been wanting to put this to the test. I begged, borrowed, cajoled, harassed, and arguably stalked NightForce for a review sample. Arguably stalked is a loose interpretation or so my lawyer tells me.
Earlier this week a box arrived from Orofino. And you know what? It was absolutely worth the wait.

Thu, 09/14/2017 - 15:24

In our .17 HMR vs .22LR shootout, the .17 HMR was the clear winner. So the obvious question is, why not go to .17 WSM ( Winchester Super Magnum) instead of .17 HMR?
