  1. The Perfect Hunting Partner

    By Jeff Rueth We’ve all had a lot of hunting partners over the years. Some great and some you would like to forget. You have the guy that doesn’t help with anything unless asked, the guy that always wants to borrow something because he was to cheap to buy his own. You have the guy that forgets half of their stuff and the guy that snores so loud that you think a chain saw was running. There’s also the complete drunk and the guy hat never brings enough food but eats everything in camp.
  2. Precision Scope Mounting For The Working Rifle

    By Jim See of Elite Accuracy - - Everybody seems to be an expert when it comes to putting stuff together but a novice when it comes to diagnosing zero shifts, and accuracy problems with their rifles. I decided long ago I was going to make my ability to diagnose problems much easier by applying some principals I learned from some of the best Rifle Builders and Shooters in the country.
  3. The 6.5 Sherman, And Other 6.5’s I Have Known

    By Gene Solyntjes 3,329 fps! I looked down at the chronograph in surprise. After shooting rifles chambered in 6.5 millimeter since 1968, this number seemed surprising to me. What it meant was a 143 grain ELDX Hornady bullet had achieved this velocity in this Bartlein 26 inch long, 5r barrel from just 60.5 grains of Reloader 22 in this new 6.5 Sherman barreled rifle. I was later to duplicate this velocity with Re 23.
  4. Wyoming Spring Bear Hunt

    It didn’t take much discussion to convince me that a life-size body mount is the only way to honor this creature.
  5. Passing Judgement On The Creedmoor

    By Darrell Holland In the shooting community the 6.5 Creedmoor has indeed taken the country by storm. It’s hard to find a magazine on the news stand that does not mention it and manufacturers are adding it to their list of chamberings.
  6. Zeiss Conquest V4 Riflescope Field Test And Review: 4-16x44 Zbr Moa & 6-24x50 Illuminated Zmoa

    Optics with high-end “champagne” performance and a price tag within reach of those on a “beer budget.”
  7. Scope mounting: Should I Lap or Bed my Mounting System?

    By Jim See. What measures do we take to assure our system is flat and parallel to best align the rings with the scope tube?
  8. A Case For Prs

    By Sam Nelson I checked again for wind, the mirage was a boil, almost imperceptible. I could feel a coolness on my back where my shirt was damp from sweat, but it came and went and it never stayed more than a few seconds. I checked my watch again, 8:00 pm on the dot. Shooting light ended at 8:16. I watched the cow elk make her way down the ridge.
  9. Building Your Next Custom Rifle

    By Don Bitz - Owner - Stocky's Stocks. The best receiver from a "compatible parts availability" standpoint is the Remington 700 for a custom rifle of just about any kind.
  10. Things You Can Learn From A Rock

    By Darrell Holland On a recent hunting trip to South Africa with my Alumni students, I took the opportunity to burn extra rounds of ammunition on distant rocks to gain additional data on trajectory curves, winds and temperatures.
  11. What is Parallax?

    What is Parallax? By Earl Hines, Best of the West Master Gunsmith When we talk about the accuracy of a shooting system, there is one element that most people know little about, don't understand, don't know how to apply, or don't recognize. Many people have indicated that they understand it but when asked, they give an inaccurate response. What I am referring to is that thing called parallax. What is it? How does it work? How do I adjust it? Is it important? How do I know when it's...
  12. Maintaining Consistency In Your Brass

    By Jim See. My last article on brass prep centered on preparing new brass for loading. This article will cover maintaining that brass for long life and the processes I use in my brass loading prep.
  13. 7mm Remington Magnum

    7mm Remington Magnum By Nathan Foster History When the Mauser brothers designed the 7x57 cartridge for use in their M93 military bolt action rifle, the excellent qualities inherent in the 7mm bore diameter soon became apparent to cartridge designers all over the world. Here was a cartridge that produced a flatter trajectory than most of its competition, minimal wind drift and potentially, optimum terminal performance at extended ranges. Following these discoveries, cartridge designers...
  14. Precision Hand Loading For Long Range-Chapter One: Brass Sort & Prep

    Precision Hand Loading for Long Range-Chapter One: Brass Sort & Prep By Tres MonCeret I have written an instructional article on some of the more advanced techniques of precision hand loading after teaching and answering questions on this subject time and time again. Many of these techniques are basic procedures in competitive bench rest shooting. We field shooters can squeeze all the more accuracy out of our equipment by incorporating many of these procedures even though we are not using...
  15. Triggers

    By Les Voth - I'd read about Jewel Triggers, but never owned one or pulled on one until my friend Richard gave me a lesson on what a trigger should be on a hunting rifle. He said it should be something you don't have to think about. I'd never thought about it like that.
