    Got the idea from the current similar post.

    Done:
    'Rifleshooter' -interesting but basically advertising,
    'Guns and Ammo' -as for Rifleshooter,
    'Precision Shooting' -inconsistent (for my interests) subject matter,
    'The Accurate Rifle' - seemed to have regular pistol articles!?

    What's the recommended alternative?

    My favorite magazines are "Rifle" and "Handloader" magazines by Wolff Publishing. You get six issues of each a year, alternating between Rifle one month and Handloader the other. These two are expensive, but as far as infomation goes, they are EXCELLENT. I would much rather pay for these two than pick up some of the others that all talk about the same gun/cartridge each month.

    The Varmint hunter magazine has something for everyone in every issue.

    I recommend it still-even though it used to be better 5 or 6 years ago.

    Matt..
    Shooting Sports & Gun Mart.
    Target Sports & Sporting Rifle.
    but then i'm biased..

    wir haben Caliber und
    Visier hier in Deutschland..

    but i dunno if you read German.

    I like to pick up a few gun mags (and a load of beef jerky) when i get anywhere near a PX.
    There a mag called Guns or weapons for SWAT or something like that,, its quite interesting..

    Nice colors and fonts, they flunk the 5 second test (I've got money burning a hole in my pocket, I want to subscribe). In fact, after 5 minutes I still can't figure out how to give them my money. Perhaps you know the magic link.

    They failed the 5 second test but past the 30 second 2nd chance test. I sent the money.

    I also think that Rifle and Handloader are the two best shooting magazines that I have read. These are the only gun rags that I can stand to actually read cover to cover !
