    By John Johnston - The Ruger Precision Rifle in .223 is the perfect practice rifle for the precision shooters. Because the stock is adjustable, the rifle is heavy and has a muzzle brake; this rifle in .223 would be great for starting a young shooter off a bench. There is practically no recoil.

    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.
  9. Distance Bulls-How to Hunt Elk from 5 Miles Away

    Distance Bulls How to Hunt Elk from 5 Miles Away By Remi Warren, of Western Hunter and Elk Hunter Magazine The first elk tag I received in my home state of Nevada came well after I started elk hunting; ten years later to be exact. By that point, I had taken quite a few bulls in other states and guided many more while working as an elk guide in Montana and New Mexico. Most the bulls I had spotted while glassing, but most were probably a mile away or less. Big open country can be the best...

  11. 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...
  12. Basic Brass Preparations

    Basic Brass Preparations By Jim See Your rifle brass is the foundation of your load. Take the time to ensure it is consistent and truly ready to load. Let’s start with Lapua brass, but the same can apply to Norma. It’s often stated that this brass is “ready to load straight from the box.” Well, not really. Shooters who use quality brass realize how consistent quality brass is. Typical weight variations between pieces and boxes in the same lot are usually within a weight range of 2 grains,...
  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...

  15. Bartlein T-Rifled Barrels

    Bartlein T-Rifled Barrels © 2017 by Glenn Burroughs Some months ago a nice custom rifle barrel chambered in 6mm BR Norma and threaded for a Remington 700 action came into my life. It originally belonged to a friend who shot it less than a hundred times, then decided he wanted a barrel with a faster twist for those very accurate, long range 105-grain bullets. The 6mm BR is just about my favorite cartridge so this barrel would be the basis of a new, and hopefully inexpensive, varmint rifle....
