  1. 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.”
  2. Tikka T3X CTR 6.5 Creedmoor + Swarovski Z8i = One Fine Hunting Rig

    As a gun writer with many years under my belt, I have looked through a lot of scopes and it still amazes me how bright and clear the Swarovski optics are in any light conditions.
  3. 6.5 Prc - Review

    By John Johnston In October of 2017 Hornady announced the birth of a new cartridge, the 6.5 PRC. PRC stands for Precision Rifle Cartridge. Hornady had this cartridge in mind for many years.
  4. ATN X-Sight II HD 3-14 Day/Night Riflescope Review

    ATN X-Sight II HD 3-14 Day/Night Riflescope Review By TR Nelson The ATN X-Sight II HD 3-14 Day/Night Riflescope is the latest generation of software assisted digital optics. It is available as either a 5-20x or a 3-14x magnification, and is capable of doing a ton of neat, slick and even downright useful things, provided you know how to operate it. As the name implies, the scope allows the user to run the exact same optic during the night as in the daytime with the push of a couple buttons....
  5. Box2bench Targets: Right Idea, Right Time

    It's designed for load development, but even if you use it only as a normal shooting target it’s got 30 aiming points and it’s durable enough to be set up multiple times so you can track your own progress over multiple sessions.
  6. Nightforce SHV 5-20x56 Rifle Scope With New Exposed Elevation Turret

    My introduction to Nightforce optics happened only several years ago as I first became addicted to long range hunting. I had recently found LongRangeHunting.com and delved into a world of information about long range shooting and hunting that I could have only dreamed of. At that point I had never even heard of Nightforce, and at the time local stores didn't even carry the brand.
  7. Barrel Life: A Screed of Old Standby & the Math of the Matter

    When you talk about “barrel life”, exactly what you are talking about is of paramount importance but isn’t clarified by the simple words “barrel life”.
  8. Shooting A 223 Rifle To A Mile Accurately

    Shooting A 223 Rifle To A Mile Accurately By Jerry Teo 223 To A Mile This long range 223 rifle project began last year after some very heated debates on a couple of shooting forums. The general consensus was that it is impossible, a huge waste of time and I was a little bit off my rocker. Sounded like a nice challenge to me. The quest is simple, can I get a 223 rifle using new high BC bullets to reach out to a mile (1760yds) AND arrive accurately (initial goal was 2MOA or less). Felt...
  9. Effective Game Killing - Part 2

    The speed of incapacitation or what we call fast killing is one method for which the hunter is able to measure a cartridge’s effectiveness on game in comparison to other cartridges.
  10. Beartooth Wireless Communicator Review

    How great would it be to be able to turn your smartphone into a 2-way walkie-talkie with text and GPS location messaging, even when you don’t have any cellular reception?
  11. 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.
  12. All About Riflescope Reticles

    All About Riflescope Reticles By MeccaStreisand A reticle is simply a set of markings inside an optical device for use in measuring, pointing, aiming, etc... My 8" Newtonian telescope comes with an eyepiece that you can use for aligning the telescope with the Earth properly so its drive motor pre-programming can drive it to pre-determined astronomical points of interest automatically. Inside that eyepiece is a reticle of sorts, there are several stars and constellations. You adjust the...
  13. 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...
  14. Zeiss Conquest Gavia 85 Spotting Scope Review

    The Conquest is lighter and more functional than scopes in its similar price point and has glass quality of spotters considered a step above.
  15. Leupold VX-3 CDS Scope Vs. Quigley Ford Scope Review

    Leupold VX-3 CDS Scope Vs. Quigley Ford Scope Review By John Johnston Each year I have the pleasure to test and evaluate a lot of different rifles and scopes. The scope industry is changing every day and not always for the best. These two particular scopes caught my eye. They are not exactly alike but they do fill a need in the long range shooting/hunting world. Not everyone wants to shoot a deer at 1500 yards or partake in F Class matches. Neither is everyone a reloader. There are a lot...
