  1. .240 Weatherby Magnum: The Hotrod 6mm

    .240 Weatherby Magnum: The Hotrod 6mm By John Johnston In 1968 Roy Weatherby designed and created his last Weatherby magnum cartridge. The .240 was born to compete with the .240 H&H. Typical of Roy Weatherby’s prior rounds, the .240 had a belted case. It has survived for all these years, but its future may be in doubt. Like most of Weatherby’s cartridges, the cost of .240 ammunition and...

    10 Year Old Ram On The 10th Day Of A 10 Day Hunt By Bruce Marshall Where to start? I guess the beginning is actually when I moved my family to Wyoming 25 years ago. As a hunter it is a great place to be. I started applying for a sheep within a couple of years of arriving. Not every year, but probably every other year. Then things changed in 1994 as Wyoming went to a preference point system...

    12 Year Old Bags 6X6 Bull Elk By Mike Greene In late September of 2011, I had the privilege of teaching my 12 year old grandson Matt to elk hunt here in the White Mountains of Arizona. On his second try Matt drew an Arizona Early Rifle Bull Elk Tag. This hunt would be right in the middle of the rut with a new moon about the 4th night. Our anticipation began to soar. Matt’s dad, Daniel, and I...
  5. 1500 Yard Prairie Dogs

    1500 Yard Prairie Dogs By Ernie Bishop The quest for hitting prairie dogs in the field was a challenge for me in 1984, as I was unfamiliar with center-fire rifles and high magnification scopes. Growing up on a Kansas farm, upland game was a norm. I was used to using a shotgun or an iron-sighted 22 rim-fire rifle, but the heavy barreled custom 6mm Remington rifle with set trigger and a Unertl...

  9. 223 Trainer Rifles By the 6.5 Guys

    .223 Trainer Rifles By the 6.5 Guys (Steve Lawrence, Ed Mobley) About a year ago we were hanging out with our gunsmith Travis Redell of RBros Rifles and we asked him what our next build should be. In the back of our minds we were expecting him to recommend one of the more powerful 6.5mm cartridges or a flat shooting 6mm. Instead Travis recommended we both build .223 trainers. His response was...
  10. 240 inch Wyoming Giant

    240 inch Wyoming Giant By Adam Johnson It all began as a dream over 25 years ago. Ever since I can remember, the thing I looked forward to most throughout the year was hunting season. You see, I was born in Wyoming, which means that the chances are better than not that you grew up hunting, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors that we are blessed with here in our state. I just could not wait to...
